Proton production cross sections for 10Be, Al, 7Be and 22Na produced by protons in silicon dioxide (for oxygen) and silicon targets over a wide proton energy range, 25-500 MeV, have been measured using accelerator mass, spectrometry or nondestructive γ-ray spectroscopy. These cross sections are important for interpreting measurements of the concentration of these nuclides produced in extraterrestrial materials by cosmic rays.
