Abstract

Excitation functions of the natEr(d, x)163,165,166,167,168,170Tm and natEr(d, x)171Er reactions have been measured experimentally from their respective thresholds up to 40 MeV for the first time. Cross-sections were determined using the activation method and the stacked foil irradiation technique. The theoretical interpretation was done with the ALICE-IPPE code. From the fitted experimental cross-section data integral production yields were calculated and compared to measured integral yield data reported in the literature.
