Thanks Jon! This tells the story here. Yes you can make Mo99! Great huh? However, you can't prove it! Sure you can.....All you need is a multi-thousand dollar EDAX detection system hooked to your Gamma Spectrometer and to blast the Mo target for 45 minutes continuously with 3 million neutrons per second just like Jon did.
Jon is our premier activation guy with all the best gear that money can buy. He can prove he got Mo99 using his plus-ultra, kick-ass fusor and his lucky find EDAX detection system plugged into his lucky find gamma spectrometer, using his best, time honed, technique and some locally supplied liquid nitrogen.
Wanna' give it a go at your end?
The long struggle to answer your question.....No, you cannot make detectable Mo99 with a nucleospot in average amateur hands. You need lots of neutrons poured over a long time into the Mo target and a lot of very specialized and expensive detection gear to be able to say you did it.
