Title: Nuclear excitation functions from 40 to 200 MeV proton irradiation of terbium

Nuclear formation cross sections are reported for 26 radionuclides, measured with 40–200 MeV proton irradiations of terbium foils. These data provide the basis for the production of medically relevant radionuclides (e.g., 152Tb, 155Tb, 155Eu, and 156Eu) and 153Gd, a potential source used in ongoing efforts to characterize stellar nucleosynthesis routes. Computational predictions from the ALICE2011, CEM03.03, Bertini, and INCL + ABLA codes are also compared with newly measured data to contribute to the ongoing process of code development, and yields are calculated for selected radionuclides using measured data.
