Abstract

Target foil stacks of terbium were bombarded with α-particles of incident energies ≤55 MeV. Excitation functions for the /α,xn/ x=2–5 reactions were determined. On the basis of the cross sections, the thick target yields of/163−x/Ho /x=2.5/ have been evaluated. Activation and stacked-foil techniques were applied.
