    • Abstract


      A theoretical study of the nuclear reaction cross-section for the production of 64Cu and 86Y was performed from the nuclear reactions 64Ni(p, n)64Cu, 64Ni(d, 2n)64Cu, 66Zn(d, 𝛼)64Cu, 68Zn(p, n𝛼)64Cu, 86Sr(p, n)86gY, 87Sr(p, 2n)86gY and 88Sr(p, 3n)86gY. The calculations were performed using three codes EMPIRE, TALYS and ALICE-IPPE. The excitation function curves for the investigated reactions have been constructed from the enriched targets using 64Ni, 66Zn, 68Zn, 86Sr, 87Sr and 88Sr. The calculated excitation functions and the experimental data were compared. Mean standardized deviation, mean relative deviation and mean ratio statistical parameters were introduced to control the quality of the fitting between both the experimentally and the theoretically calculated cross-sections.
