The total cross sections for the $^{152}$Gd(p,$\gamma$)$^{153}$Tb and $^{152}$Gd(p,n)$^{152}$Tb reactions have been measured by the activation method at effective center-of-mass energies \mbox{$3.47 \leq E_\mathrm{c.m.}^\mathrm{eff}\leq 7.94$ MeV} and \mbox{$4.96 \leq E_\mathrm{c.m.}^\mathrm{eff} \leq 7.94$ MeV}, respectively. The targets were prepared by evaporation of 30.6\% isotopically enriched $^{152}$Gd oxide on aluminum backing foils, and bombarded with proton beams provided by a…

The cross section calculation of 112Sn(α,γ)116Te reaction with different nuclear models at the astrophysical energy range
The theoretical cross section calculations for the astrophysical p process are needed because most of the related reactions are technically very difficult to be measured in the laboratory. Even if
Measurements of 160Dy (p, γ) at Energies Relevant for the Astrophysical γ Process
Rare information on photodisintegration reactions of nuclei with mass numbers A ≈ 160 at astrophysical conditions impedes our understanding of the origin of p-nuclei. Experimental determination of
The activation method for cross section measurements in nuclear astrophysics
Abstract.The primary aim of experimental nuclear astrophysics is to determine the rates of nuclear reactions taking place in stars in various astrophysical conditions. These reaction rates are an
High Efficiency Total Absorption Spectrometer HECTOR for capture reaction measurements
Abstract.Proper understanding of the stellar nucleosynthesis processes requires information on a variety of capture reaction cross sections. Since these cross sections are typically very low, they
Separation of radioisotopes of terbium from a europium target irradiated by 27 MeV α-particles
Abstract A method for obtaining 156, 155, 154m2, 154, 153Tb radiotracers by the irradiation of a europium oxide target of natural isotopic composition by 27 MeV α-particles is proposed. Terbium can
New developments in the production of theranostic pairs of radionuclides
A brief historical background of the development of the theranostic approach in nuclear medicine is given and seven theranostic pairs of radionuclides, namely 44gSc/47Sc, 64Cu/67Cu, 83Sr/89Sr,
Systematics of the semimicroscopic proton-nucleus optical potential at low energies relevant for nuclear astrophysics
Background: Astrophysical models studying the origin of the neutron-deficient p nuclides require knowledge of the reaction rates of neutron, proton and α-proton photodisintegrations of pre-existing
Theranostic Terbium Radioisotopes: Challenges in Production for Clinical Application
This review discusses that, at present, neither light charged particle nor the heavy ion (HI) activation are suitable for large-scale production of neutron deficient terbium nuclides.
