The new calculations on the excitation functions of Ni-61(p,n)Cu-61, Ni-62(p,n)Cu-62, Ni-64(p,n)Cu-64, Cu-61(p,2n)Zn-62, Cu-63(p,n)Zn-63, Cu-65(p,n)Zn-65, Zn-66(p,n)Ga-66, Zn-67(p,2n)Ga-66, Zn-67(p,n)Ga-67 and Zn-68(p,n)Ga-68 reactions have been carried out in the 5-30MeV proton energy range. The calculations involve the cascade exciton model, preequilibrium nuclear reaction model and exciton model. The calculated results are compared with the experimental data taken from the literature.
