Abstract

Experimental cross section data for the production of 7Be by 9Be(d,x)7Be reactions are presented for the first time at deuteron energies up to 50MeV. For the 9Be(p,x)7Be reaction values up to 65MeV are presented and compared to literature values. The cross sections were measured using an activation method in stacked foil irradiations followed by gamma-ray spectroscopy. Thick target yields were calculated and discussed in comparison with other 7Be producing reactions. The cross section data calculated with the latest versions of the TALYS code (TENDL2012 and TENDL2013 libraries) are discussed.
