Abstract The inelastic scattering of 2l.6-Mev deuterons by Ni, Cu, Zn, Rh, Ag, Sn, Gd, Ta, Pt, and Au has been measured. A Nal(Tl) crystal sandwich was used for the detection of the scattered particles. The calculated energy scale of the spectrum was checked by obserying the inelastic spectrum from Mg. The angular distribution shows a pronounced peaking in the forward direction. At background angles there is no increase in cross section with increasing excitation, showing that compoundnucleus processes do not contribute to the cross section. Up to an excitation of l0 Mev, the inelastic scattering cross section for 2l.6-Mev deuterons scattered at 60 deg by Au is not measurably different from that for 22- Mev protons. However, the inelastic deuteron cross sections for Ni, Cu, and Zn are about half of the corresponding 22-Mev proton cross sections at 60 deg . The gross structure found by Cohen in the inelastic spectrum is also observed in the present experiment. However, the gross structure in Ta and Gd appears to be considerably more pronounced in the deuteron spectrum than in the proton spectrum. (auth)
