Activation cross-sections for production of 54Mn, 56,57,58,60Co and 60,61Cu radioisotopes in 3He-induced reactions on Co were measured from the respective thresholds up to 26 MeV. The stacked foil irradiation method was used to produce the activation products and the emitted gamma photons were detected by high-resolution gamma-spectroscopy. The obtained new cross-sections are compared with literature data. The possible applications of the available excitation function data are discussed.
