Cross sections of deuteron induced nuclear reactions were measured up to 40 MeV using the standard stacked-foil irradiation method and high-resolution gamma-ray spectroscopy. Experimental cross sections and derived integral yields are reported for the reactions natCd(d,x)107g,108g,108m,109g,110g,110m,111g,112m,113m,114m,115m,116m1In, natCd(d,x)111m,115g,115m,117g,117mCd and natCd(d,x)105g,106m,110m,111gAg. No experimental data measured on natural cadmium have been found in the literature for the isotopes 107g,108g,108m,112m,115mIn, 111m,115m,117g,117mCd and 105g,106m,110m,111gAg. The experimental data are analyzed with and compared to the results of the theoretical model code ALICE-IPPE. Applications of the cross sections for data validation, medical radioisotope production, thin-layer activation and dose calculation are discussed.
