Disclosed herein are embodiments of systems and methods for creating radioisotopes. In one aspect, a Compact Fusion Neutron Source (CFNS) as described herein, can be used to create radioisotopes. The generation of the radioisotopes can utilize (n,2n), (n,p), (n,d), or (n,α) reactions, which can be caused by the high energy neutrons created by fusion. This abstract is intended for use as a scanning tool only and is not intended to be limiting.
