Model analysis of isotope-production cross sections for proton- and deuteron-induced reactions on Zr-93
A treatment of High-Level Radioactive Waste (HLW) is one of the crucial issues for nuclear energy developments because of the long-term radiotoxicity of long-lived fission products (LLFPs) included in HLW. Nuclear transmutation technology has received much attention as a possible method of the burden reduction of its disposal by converting LLFPs into stable and/or short-lived nuclei. So far, measurements of isotope production cross sections for proton- and deuteron-induced reactions on Zr-93 at 50, 105, and 209 MeV/nucleon have been performed. As the next step, investigation of energy dependence and systematic benchmark tests of theoretical models are required. In the present work, we focus on the inter-comparison among them and benchmark tests of theoretical models. The inter-comparison is performed from the aspects of the mass number distribution of the production cross sections. Also, the theoretical model calculations by PHITS code and INCL++/ABLA07 code are analyzed based on the differences from the experimental data. The detailed analysis and results are presented in the poster.
