Abstract

Excitation function for the natGd(d,xn)155Tb and natGd(d,n)161Tb nuclear reactions were measured using the standard stacked-foil activation technique in the deuteron energy range of 30 MeV down to 4.2 MeV. The measured cross-section data were compared not only with the earlier reported experimental values but also with the results of a theoretical model as well. Integral yields for155 Tb and161Tb and for their contaminating radioisotopes were also deduced to evaluate the production circumstances. The results revealed that the investigated radioisotopes can not be produced in no-carrier-added form via deuteron way even using 100 % enriched targets (155Gd and 160Gd).
