Comparison of elemental abundances in sun, meteorites and earth provides understanding of the formation and evolution of the solar system. Yet, the majority of the solar system abundances are based on meteoritic values [1–6]. Here we report an attempt to estimate a feasibility of direct measurements of iodine and bromine in the GENESIS solar wind Aluminum on Sapphire collector (AloS) using neutron induced conversions: ^(127)I(n,γβ)^(128)Xe, ^(79)Br(n,γβ)^(80)Kr and ^(81)Br(n,γβ)^(82)Kr.
