Abstract

Excitation functions of the natEr(p,x)163,166,167,168,170Tm and natEr(p,x)cum161Er reactions were measured experimentally from the respective threshold up to 36 MeV incident proton energy and in the range of 60-70 MeV. The cross sections were measured with activation method using the stacked foil irradiation technique. A theoretical interpretation of contributing reactions based on results of the ALICE-IPPE code was done. From our experimental cross section data integral production yields were calculated which were compared to the experimental integral yield data reported in the literature.
