Copper is one of the constituents of alloys for structural components and a dosimetry material. In this study, we calculated the proton emission spectra and the excitation function produced by (n, xp) and (n, p) reactions respectively by using the Exciton model predictions combined with the Kalbach angular distribution systematics and the Hybrid Monte-Carlo Simulation (HMS). The sensitivity studies on the input parameters from optical model, level density, spin cut-off parameter and mean free path have been investigated for our calculations with the code EMPIRE and the code TALYS. The proton emission spectra and the excitation function for 65Cu nucleus were discussed and found in good agreement with the available experimental data.
