In the frame of a systematic study of the activation cross-sections of deuteron induced nuclear reactions,., excitation functions of the (103)Rh(d,x) (100,101.103)pd, (100g,101m,101g,102m,102g)Rh and (103g)Ru reactions were determined up to 40 MeV. Cross-sections were measured with the activation method using a stacked foil irradiation technique. Excitation functions of the contributing reactions were calculated using the ALICE-IPPE, EMPIRE-II and TALYS codes. From the measured cross-section data integral production yields were calculated and compared with experimental integral yield data reported in the literature. From the measured cross-sections and previous data, activation curves were deduced to support thin layer activation (TLA) on rhodium and Rh containing alloys. (C) 2011 Elsevier B.V.
