Abstract

Activation of thin electrodeposited natural Os targets was investigated in a stacked foil irradiation with a 50 MeV deuteron beam. Assessments of the produced radionuclides by high resolution gamma spectroscopy yielded excitation functions for production of 184,185,186m1,g,187m1+g,188m1+g,189m2+m1+g,190m2,190m2,m1+g,192m1+gI r and 185Os. Reduced uncertainty on cross sections is obtained by simultaneous remeasurement of the 27Al(d,x)24Na monitor reaction over the whole energy range. Thick target yield for deuteron induced production route of 192m1+gIr and comparison with the natIr(n,γ) route are reviewed. A comparison with updated theoretical codes (ALICE-D, EMPIRE-D and the TENDL2011 on-line library) is discussed.
