For production of the therapeutic radionuclide 114mIn, proton and deuteron induced nuclear reactions were investigated using the stacked-foil technique on enriched 114Cd and natCd targets up to E p = 36 MeV and Ed = 21 MeV. The experimental cross sections of the 114Cd(p, γ)115mIn, 114Cd(p, n)114mIn, 114Cd(p, 2n) 113mIn, 114Cd(p, 4n)111m,gIn, 114Cd(p, αn)110mAg, 114Cd(p, α)111m,gAg, 114Cd(d, n)115mIn, 114Cd(d, 2n)114mIn, 114Cd(d, 3n) 113mIn, 114Cd(d, p)115gCd, 114Cd(d, α)112Ag, 114Cd(p, αn)111m,gAg, natCd(p, x)114mIn and natCd(d, x) 114mIn reactions are reported. Thick target yields are derived and different routes for production of 114mIn are compared.
