The most commonly used radioisotopes are Palladium-103 (103Pd) and Iodine-125 (125I) for interstitial application in brachytherapy. In the present study, different production routes of 103Pd and 125I have been investigated. The different level density and optical models of the TALYS 1.95 have been used to determine 103Rh(p,n)103Pd, 103Rh(d,2n)103Pd, and 126Te(p,2n)125I production cross-sections. Besides, activity calculations and production yields have been obtained. The data from the present work have been compared with the values based on the TALYS 1.95 code and with the experimental data from the EXFOR compilation.
