Excitation functions have been measured for the reactions 89Y+p and 93Nb+p and thick-target yield curves have been derived for the production of 88Zr and 89Zr up to 70 MeV. Tandem Nb/Y-targets as well as the extraction of medically-important radio-Zr nuclides from used Nb capsules as a by-product are discussed.
