Elemental production cross sections were measured for (p,x) reactions on natural Cu targets, leading to the formation of Zn-62,Zn-63,Zn-65. These reactions are generally used for monitoring the proton beam intensity and energy e.g. in isotope production facilities. Cross sections were obtained by activation of stacked foils and subsequent gamma spectroscopy. The production data for Zn-62,Zn-63,Zn-65 between 7 and 16.5 MeV proton energy are presented as well as comparisons with literature values. Good agreement with the evaluated values was found for most of the cross-section values. (C) 2008 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
