Production cross-sections of the Ni-nat(p,x)Cu-60,Cu-61, Ni-56,Ni-57, Co-55,Co-56,Co-57,Co-58 nuclear reactions were measured in five experiments up to 65 MeV by using a stacked foil activation technique. The results were compared with the available literature values, predictions of the nuclear reaction model codes ALICE-IPPE, TALYS-1.4, and extracted data from the TENDL-2012 library. Spline fits were made on the basis of selected data, from which physical yields were calculated and compared with the literature values. The applicability of the Ni-nat(p,x)Ni-57, Co-57 reactions for thin layer activation (TLA) was investigated. The production rate for Co-55 was compared for proton and deuteron induced reactions on Ni. (C) 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
