Theoretical model analysis of $$(d,xn)$$ reactions on $$^9$$Be and $$^{12}$$C at incident energies up to 50 MeV

Double-differential thick target neutron yields (TTNYs) from deuteron bombardment on thick Be and C targets are analyzed using the DEURACS (DEUteron-induced Reaction Analysis Code System). The calculated TTNYs reproduced the experimental ones quantitatively well in the incident energy range up to 50 MeV. In addition, it was found that the proton stripping reaction makes the most dominant contribution to neutron production. From the analysis, we conclude that the DEURACS is applicable to $$(d,xn)$$ reactions and modeling of the stripping reaction is essential to predict neutron production yields accurately.
