Abstract: Neutron activation cross sections for the 63Cu(n, alpha)60Co, and 60Ni(n,p)60Co reactions were measured in the energy range from 13 to 20 MeV. The irradiations were carried out at the 7 MV Van de Graaff accelerator at IRMM, Geel. Quasi-mono-energetic neutrons were produced via the 3H(d,n)4He reaction at 1,2,3, and 4 MeV incident deuteron energy. All reaction cross section. The 93Nb(n,2n)92mNb reaction cross section was used as a secondary standard. The measured results are compared with work by other authors, TALYS-0.57 and STAPRE-H+ model calculations, and current evaluated data files. For both reactions a new shape of the excitation function was found, as compared to the previous measurements above 15MeV.
