On Low and Medium Energy Deuteron-Induced Reactions on 63,65Cu
- The activation cross sections of (d,p), (d,2n), (d,3n), and (d,2p) reactions on 63,65Cu were measured in the energy range from 4 to 20 MeV using the stacked-foils technique. Errors of present experimental cross section data are composed of the scale factor (¡5%, due to energy and beam current uncertainty) and datum uncertainty of the foil thickness (¡2%) and a mean statistical error in the determination of specific activities (¡3%). Following a previous extended analysis of elastic-scattering, breakup and direct-reaction of deuterons on light nuclei, for energies from 3 to 60 MeV, the pre-equilibrium and statistical emissions are considered in the same energy range. Finally, all available deuteron-induced reaction cross sections for 63,65Cu have been involved within a simultaneous analysis of the deuteron elastic-scattering and reaction data.
