Excitation functions of the reactions natEr(α, xn)167,169Yb and natEr(α, x)165,167,172,173Tm were measured up to 38 MeV. The experimental excitation functions are compared to the theoretical calculations based on the model code ALICE-IPPE and to the data found in the literature. Yields of different production routes (proton-, deuteron- and alpha-irradiation) of 169Yb are compared.
