Abstract

New experimental data for production of 7Be and 22,24Na in deuteron irradiation of natMg and Al up to 50MeV are presented. The induced activity, measured with HPGe spectroscopy, allows us to determine excitation functions of natMg(d,x) and 27Al(d,x) reactions involved in the activation process with reference to natTi(d,x) 48V monitor cross sections. A comparison with experimental literature values and results from updated theoretical codes is discussed. Thick target yields were derived from fits to our cross-sections and integrated personnel dose was calculated for different irradiation cycles and exposure scenarios around high power deuteron accelerator facilities.
