Background: A number of accelerator-based isotope production facilities utilize 100- to 200-MeV proton beams due to the high production rates enabled by high-intensity beam capabilities and the greater diversity of isotope production brought on by the long range of high-energy protons. However, nuclear reaction modeling at these energies can be challenging because of the interplay between different reaction modes and a lack of existing guiding cross-section data. Purpose: A Tri-lab collaboration has been formed among the Lawrence Berkeley, Los Alamos, and Brookhaven National Laboratories to address these complexities by characterizing charged-particle nuclear reactions relevant to the production of established and novel radioisotopes. Method: In the inaugural collaboration experiments, stacked-targets of niobium foils were irradiated at the Brookhaven Linac Isotope Producer (Ep=200MeV) and the Los Alamos Isotope Production Facility (Ep=100MeV) to measure Nb93(p,x) cross sections between 50 and 200 MeV. First measurements of the Nb93(p,4n)Mo90 beam monitor reaction beyond 100 MeV are reported in this work, as part of the broadest energy-spanning dataset for the reaction to date. Nb93(p,x) production cross sections are additionally reported for 22 other measured residual products. The measured cross-section results were compared with literature data as well as the default calculations of the nuclear model codes TALYS, CoH, EMPIRE, and ALICE. Results: The default code predictions largely failed to reproduce the measurements, with consistent underestimation of the preequilibrium emission. Therefore, we developed a standardized procedure that determines the reaction model parameters that best reproduce the most prominent reaction channels in a physically justifiable manner. The primary focus of the procedure was to determine the best parametrization for the preequilibrium two-component exciton model via a comparison to the energy-dependent Nb93(p,x) data, as well as previously published La139(p,x) cross sections. Conclusions: This modeling study revealed a trend toward a relative decrease for internal transition rates at intermediate proton energies (Ep=20-60 MeV) in the current exciton model as compared to the default values. The results of this work are instrumental for the planning, execution, and analysis essential to isotope production.
