In the frame of a systematic study of excitation functions of deuteron induced reactions the excitation functions of the 133Cs(d,x)133m,133mg,131mgBa,134, 132Cs and 12 9mXe nuclear reactions were measured up to 40MeV deuteron energies by using the stacked foil irradiation technique and γ-ray spectroscopy of activated samples. The results were compared with calculations performed with the theoretical nuclear reaction codes ALICE-IPPE-D, EMPIRE II-D and TALYS calculation listed in the TENDL-2014 library. A moderate agreement was obtained. Based on the integral yields deduced from our measured cross sections, production of 131Cs via the 133Cs(d,4n)131Ba→131Cs reaction and 133Ba via 133Cs(d,2n) reactions is discussed in comparison with other charged particle production routes.
