Abstract

Activation cross sections of α-particle induced reactions on natYb were measured. The stacked foil technique, the activation method and the γ-ray spectrometry were used. The stacked target consisted of natYb and natTi foils was irradiated with a 51.0-MeV α beam at the RIKEN AVF cyclotron. The γ rays emitted from the irradiated foils were measured using a high-resolution HPGe detector. Production cross sections of 170,171,172,173,175Hf, 171,172,173,177gLu and 169Yb were determined. The results were compared with previous experimental studies and theoretical calculations. For most of the reactions a consistent agreement was found.
