Abstract

Excitation functions of the 78Kr(d, α)76Br, 78Kr(d, n)79Rb and 78Kr(d, x)79Kr reactions were measured for the first time in the energy range up to 13 MeV using the stacked gas cell technique and activation method. Highly enriched 78Kr was used as target material. The maximum cross section of the 78Kr(d, α)76Br reaction at 13 MeV amounts to 21 mb and the calculated yield of 76Br over the energy range Ed = 13 → 4 MeV to only 59 kBq/μA h. Due to the very low expected yield of 76Br and the high cost of the target gas, this route is not suitable for production of 76Br compared with the other well investigated production routes.
