The total cross sections for the Te120(p,γ)I121 and Te120(p,n)I120 reactions have been measured by the activation method in the effective center-of-mass energies 2.47 MeV ≤ Ec.m.eff ≤ 7.93MeV and 6.44 MeV ≤ Ec.m.eff ≤ 7.93 MeV, respectively. The targets were prepared by evaporation of 99.4% isotopically enriched Te120 on aluminum and carbon backing foils, and bombarded with proton beams provided by the FN tandem accelerator at the University of Notre Dame. The cross sections and S factors were deduced from the observed γ ray activity, which was detected off-line by two Clover HPGe detectors mounted in close geometry. The results are presented and compared with the predictions of statistical model calculations using the codes NON-SMOKER and TALYS.
