A precise knowledge of all the isotopes produced in spallation reactions is necessary to predict induced radioactivity and chemical modifications in spallation targets. Experimental data recently obtained using the reverse kinematics technique are presented. New, more complete, preliminary experimental results on the Fe+p system are shown. These measurements of residual nuclei production in iron can be used directly to assess changes and damage created by spallation in an ADS metallic window.
