Excitation functions of (α,xn) reactions on 98.28% enriched (123)Sb and on (nat)Sb were measured from 9 to 40 MeV. The data could be described well in terms of statistical and precompound models using the code TALYS. The discrepancies in the literature data for the formation of (125)I and (126)I were solved. The nuclear reaction (123)Sb(α,3n)(124)I on an… CONTINUE READING
