The excitation function of the natCu(3He,x)65Zn nuclear reaction was measured from its threshold up to 53 MeV incident energy relative to the natTi(3He,x)48V monitor reaction by using the conventional stacked foil activation technique combined with HPGe γ-ray spectrometry. Our result is systematically higher than the IAEA recommendation, and more experimental works are desired especially above 25 MeV.
