Abstract

Stacks containing high purity natural Fe and Ti foils were irradiated in deuteron beams with incident energies of 30 and 50 MeV. Reactions on Al foils were used for monitoring beam energy and intensity. The excitation functions up to 50 MeV for natTi(d, x)44m,46,47,48Sc, natFe(d, x)55,57Co, 52,54Mn, 51Cr are presented and compared with the scarce literature values. No sharp peaks enabling clear identification of contributing reactions on the different naturally occurring isotopes are present. Only for the reactions 56Fe(d, n)57Co (Q = -2.1 MeV), 56Fe(d, α or 2p2n)54Mn (Q values respectively 5.7 and -22.6 MeV), 48Ti(d, α or 2p2n)46Sc (Q values 4 and -24.3 MeV) and 48Ti(d, 2pn)47Sc (Q = -13.7 MeV) on the major natural isotopes of Fe and Ti the cross sections reach values higher than 50 mb in the energy region studied.
