The excitation function of the 122Te(d, n)123I nuclear reaction has been measured from threshold up to 21 MeV by the stacked foil irradiation technique. Good agreement was obtained with the results of the recent model calculations but an energy shift of 2 MeV to lower energy can be seen when comparing with cross section measured earlier. Integral yields have been deduced from the measured excitation function and have been compared with experimental thick target yields found in the literature, A comparison of the yields of the proton and deuteron induced reactions for production of 123I is given.
