Abstract

We have measured a large number of proton-induced radionuclide production cross sections from tellurium targets of natural isotopic composition at incident energies of 0.80, 1.4, and 23 GeV. The results of these measurements are compared to semi-empirical calculations and the contribution of this cosmogenic activity to the background of the CUORE experiment, presently being realized, is evaluated.
