Excitation functions of natPb(d,x) 206,205,204,203,202Bi, 203cum,202m,201cumPb and 202cum,201cumTl reactions up to 50 MeV

Cross-sections of deuteron induced nuclear reactions on lead were measured up to 50 MeV using the standard stacked foil irradiation technique and high resolution γ-ray spectrometry. Experimental cross-sections and derived integral yields are presented for the natPb(d,x) 206,205,204,203,202Bi, 203cum,202m,201cumPb and 202cum,201cumTl reactions. The experimental data were compared with the results from literature and with the data in the TENDL-2013 library (obtained with TALYS code). The cross-section data were analyzed also with the theoretical results calculated by using the ALICE–IPPPE-D and EMPIRE-D codes.
