The excitation function for 3He-induced reactions on 103Rh, as another pathway for the production of medically used 103Pd, was studied by the stacked foil technique. Excitation functions of the 103Rh(3He,x)103Pd, 103, 104, 104m, 105Ag and 100, 101, 101m, 102, 102mRh reactions were determined up to 27 MeV by detecting the characteristic -rays obtained from the decay of residual nuclei. The experimental results were compared with the theoretical ones obtained from the EMPIRE-3.2 code and the TENDL nuclear data library. From the measured cross-section data, integral production yields were calculated.
