Abstract

Activation products of rare earth elements are gaining importance in medical and technical applications. In stacked foil irradiations, followed by high resolution gamma spectroscopy, the cross-sections for production of 161,165Er, 166gHo on 165Ho and 135,137m,137g,139Ce, 140La, 133m,133g,cumBa and 136Cs on natLa targets were measured up to 50 MeV. Reduced uncertainty is obtained by simultaneous remeasurement of the 27Al(d,x)24,22Na monitor reactions over the whole energy range. A comparison with experimental literature values and results from updated theoretical codes (ALICE-D, EMPIRE-D and the TENDL2012 online library) is discussed.
