Abstract

In a recent work by Yang et al. [1]excitation functions of nat Zr(p,x)processes were studied, resulting in new data for several radioisotopes of Rb, Sr, Y, Zr and Nb up to 66 MeV. A comparison has been made with previous experimental results from the literature, including our data published in 2015 [2]. Excellent agreement is evident in the majority of cases except for the nat Zr(p,X) 88 Y and nat Zr(p,X) 87m Y nuclear processes, where differences between the data of [1]and [2]are consistently larger than the quoted uncertainties. On closer investigation, we found an error in our paper for the nat Zr(p,X) 88 Y process, as we inadvertently listed values prior to corrections made for contributions from the decay of the longer-lived 88 Zr (T 1/2 = 83.4 h)precursor, the latter of which were required to obtain cross sections for the independent formation of 88 Y. Both our uncorrected and corrected results are shown in Fig. 1 together with the values of Ref. [1]. Our corrected values (presented in Table 1)show excellent agreement with those of Yang et al. In the case of nat Zr(p,X) 87m Y we found no errors in our analysis and could not resolve the discrepancies. In this case our cross sections are systematically higher than the values reported by Yang et al. [1]. Tárkányi et al. [3]also reported cross sections for this process, in good agreement with our values. Further investigations will be necessary to resolve this problem.
