Abstract The radiolanthanide Ho-161 (2.48 h) is a promising Auger-electron emitter for internal radiotherapy that can be produced with particle accelerators. The excitation functions of the Dy-nat(p,xn)Ho-161 and Dy-nat(d,x)Ho-161 reactions were measured up to 40 and 50 MeV respectively by using the stacked foil activation method and gamma-ray spectrometry. The experimental data were compared with results of the TALYS code available in the TENDL 2011 library [1]. The main parameters of different production routes are discussed.
