Activation cross sections for deuteron-induced reactions on natural copper were measured by using a standard stacked foil technique up to 50 MeV deuteron bombarding energy. Reaction products with half-life longer than half an hour were studied. Experimental elemental cross sections were determined and compared with earlier measured data for 62,63,65Zn, 64Cu, 57,65Ni, 57,58,60Co and 59Fe isotopes.
