|Abstract||Excitation functions for nuclear reactions induced on natural europium targets by energetic deuterons were studied up to 50 MeV. A standard stacked foil technique was used for irradiation and high resolution gamma spectrometry was applied for activity assessment. Direct or cumulative cross sections for reaction products with half-life longer than 2 h were determined. Reactions leading to the formation of the radionuclides Gd-147,Gd-149,Gd-151,Gd-153, Eu-147,Eu-148,Eu-149,Eu-150m,Eu-150g,Eu-152m,Eu-152g,Eu-154g, (153)sm and Pm-150 were studied. In most cases no earlier data were available in the literature. The new experimental results were compared with values tabulated in the on-line TENDL2011 library. (C) 2013 Elsevier B.V.
