Abstract

Excitation functions have been measured for 62Ni(α, p)65Cu in the energy range 6.5-9.0 MeV, for 41K(p, α)38Ar in the range 0.8-2.6 MeV, for 41K(p, γ)42Ca, 41K(p, αγ)38Ar, 41K(p, nγ)41Ca, and 41K(p, p'γ)41 in the range 0.6-4.0 MeV, and for 41K(p, n)41Ca from threshold to 3.0 MeV. Cross sections have been extracted from the data and these are compared with statistical-model calculations based on global optical model parameters. Alternative parameter sets have been tried for the 62Ni(α, p)65Cu data and published data for 62Ni(α, γ)66Zn and 62Ni(α, n)65Zn, and both these and the global parameters have been used in statistical-model calculations of 65Cu(p, γ)66Zn, 65Cu(p, n)65Zn and 65Cu(p, α)62N..
