The production of short-lived radioisotopes using neutron activation technique that employs (n, $\gamma$) reaction has been carried out at the 1MW PUSPATI TRIGA Reactor (RTP) with the thermal neutron flux $\sim 5 \times 10^{12}$ n cm$^2$s$^{-1}$. Several in-core locations are available to produce the radioisotopes for various medical and industrial applications such as Sm-153, Br-82, Au-198 and others related. Neutron activation technique was chosen due to the ability of target material absorbed the neutron to produce its isotope that cannot be chemically separated. This paper describes the use of a TRIGA reactor utilized a neutron activation technique to produce short-lived radioisotopes for various application in Malaysia.
