Excitation functions of natZn(p,x) nuclear reactions with proton beam energy below 18 MeV

Asad, Ali; Chun, Sun; Morandeau, L.; Cryer, D; Smith, Suzanne; Price, Roger


We measured the excitation functions of natZn (p,x) reactions up to 17.6 MeV, using the stacked-foils activation technique. High-purity natural zinc (and copper) foils were irradiated with proton beams generated by an 18 MeV isochronous cyclotron. Activated foils were measured using high-purity Ge gamma spectroscopy to quantify the radionuclides 61Cu, 66Ga, 67Ga, and 65Zn produced from the reactions. Thick-target integral yields were also deduced from the measured excitation functions of...[Show more]
