Activation cross sections for deuteron induced nuclear reactions on natural nickel target were studied by using a standard stacked foil technique and gamma spectrometry up to 50 MeV deuteron bombarding energy. Reaction products with half life of at least half an hour were studied. Experimental elemental activation cross sections were determined for reactions on nickel resulting in 61,64Cu, 56,57Ni, 55,56,57,58,60,61Co, 52,54,56Mn and 51Cr radionuclides and were compared with earlier measured data.
