We are conducting a theoretical research on deuteron-induced reaction together with Kyushu University and Research Center for Nuclear Physics (RCNP) of Osaka University. The research outcomes achieved in fiscal year 2016 are summarized as a part of the annual report of RCNP. In recent years, accelerator neutron sources using $$(d,xn)$$ reactions on light nuclei (Li, Be, C, etc.) are proposed for applications in various fields. Engineering design of such facilities requires accurate prediction of $$(d,xn)$$ reactions on light nuclei in a wide incident energy range. Therefore, we have developed a physics-based computational code system dedicated for deuteron-induced reactions, called DEURACS. In fiscal year 2016, we calculated double-differential neutron yields from deuteron bombardment on thick $$^{9}$$Be and $$^{12}$$C targets, and the calculation reproduced the experimental data quantitatively well in the incident energy range up to 50 MeV. From the results, it has been found that DEURACS can accurately predict $$(d,xn)$$ reactions on light nuclei in a wide incident energy range. In addition, component-by-component analysis has revealed that the nonelastic breakup reactions make the most dominant contribution to neutron production.
