Abstract

Excitation functions for the reactions induced by alpha particles on natTi foils and leading to the formation of 44m,44g,46,47,48Sc; 48,51Cr and 48V were determined using the stacked foil technique for energies from the respective reaction threshold up to 42 MeV. The new experimental values are compared to earlier literature values and generally good accordance is found. It appears that the natTi(α,x)51Cr reaction is particularly useful for monitoring α-beams in the 10-20 MeV region while for energies above 20 MeV the natTi(α,x)47Sc reaction or the natTi(α,x)48V reaction are more suited. The excitation functions established can be used to determine calibration curves for thin layer activation (TLA) as well.
