In order to understand atomic nuclei, photonuclear reaction is an important tool. Photons are used to induce the reactions. The use of bremsstrahlung photons generated from a medical linear accelerator is practical for performing these types of reactions. In this study, the 18 MeV endpoint energy bremsstrahlung photons have been used for activating a titanium target. By analyzing the gamma spectrum, the half-life of the 47Sc isotope has been determined to be 3.5626 days. The result is very close to the present literature values of 3.3492 days.
