The accurate determination of deuteron depth profile presents a strong analytical challenge for all the principal IBA (Ion Beam Analysis) techniques. As far as NRA (Nuclear Reaction Analysis) is concerned, the 2H(d,p) reaction, seems to be a promising candidate, especially in the case of complex matrices, or for the study of deep-implanted deuteron layers. In the present work differential cross-section values for the 2H(d,p) reaction have been determined at 140°, 160° and 170°, for Ed,lab=900- 1600 keV, with an energy step of 50 keV, using a well-characterized, thin C:D target deposited on a polished Si wafer. The experimental results were analyzed using the R-matrix calculations code AZURE. © Owned by the authors, published by EDP Sciences, 2014.
