Abstract

In the frame of a systematic study of deuteron induced activation processes on middle mass elements, excitation functions of the natBa(d,x) 135,133,132La, 135m,133m,133mg,131mgBa, 136mg,134mg,132,129Cs reactions were measured up to 50 MeV for the first time. Cross sections were measured with the activation method using a stacked foil irradiation technique followed by HPGe γ-ray spectrometry. A comparison with the results of the nuclear model TALYS code (reported in the TENDL-2015 library) was done. The potential use of the deuteron induced reactions on Ba for applications (131Cs and 131Ba production) is discussed.
