For the Accelerator-Driven nuclear transmutation System (ADS), nuclide production yield estimation in a lead-bismuth target is important to manage the target. However, experimental data of nuclide production yield by spallation and high-energy fission reactions are scarce. In order to obtain the experimental data, an experiment in J-PARC using natPb and 209Bi samples were carried out. The samples were thin foils with about 0.1 mm thick and 25 mm × 25 mm square and were irradiated with protons at kinematic energy points of 0.4GeV, 2.2GeV, and 3.0 GeV. After the irradiation, the nuclide production cross section was determined by spectroscopic measurement of decay gamma-rays from the samples with HPGe detectors. In this paper, 14 nuclide production cross sections for lead and bismuth were obtained. They were compared with the calculated cross sections with various models and the evaluated one.
