Abstract The production of Cu-64, a radioisotope of considerable interest for the application in nuclear medicine for PET imaging and radioimmunotherapy, was investigated by deuteron bombardment of enriched Ni-64 target up to E-d = 20.5 MeV. The experimental excitation function for the reaction Ni-64(d,2n)Cu-64 was measured using the stacked foil irradiation technique followed by HPGe gamma-ray analysis at 1346 keV and is compared with earlier literature values. Cross-section data for the Ni-64(d,p)Ni-65 reaction are determined for the first time. Thick target yields are derived and compared with results of other production routes.
