Activation cross-sections are presented for the first time for natGd(d,xn)161,160,156(m+), 154,154m1,154m2,153,152(m+),151(m+)Tb, natGd(d,x)159,153,151Gd and natGd(d,x)156Eu reactions from their respective thresholds up to 50MeV. The cross-sections were measured by the stacked-foil irradiation technique and by using high resolution γ-ray spectrometry. The measured values were compared with the results of theoretical models calculated by the computer codes ALICE-D, EMPIRE-D and TALYS (data from TENDL library). Integral yields of the reaction products were deduced from the excitation functions.
