Abstract In the frame of a systematic study of deuteron induced nuclear reactions on lanthanides we have measured the excitation functions on natural cerium for production of (142,139,138m,137)pr, Ce-143,Ce-141,Ce-139,Ce-137m,Ce-137,Ce-135 and La-140 up to 50 MeV deuteron energy using the activation method with stacked-foil irradiation technique and high-resolution gamma-ray spectrometry. The cross-sections of the investigated reactions were calculated using the modified pre-compound model codes ALICE-IPPE-D and EMPIRE-II-D. A comparison was made also with the data retrieved from the TENDL-2012 library, based on the latest version of the TALYS code system. The measured cross-section data are important for further improvement of nuclear reaction models and for practical applications in nuclear medicine and other labeling and activation studies.
