We have compared TALYS, MCNP6 and quantum molecular dynamics model calculations with preliminary light-ion production data in the interaction of 175 MeV quasi-monoenergetic neutrons with Fe and Bi. Data were measured with the Medley setup at the The Svedberg Laboratory, in Uppsala – Sweden. These are the first neutron induced light-ion production data available in the 100 to 200 MeV energy region; these data are relevant for the development of accelerator-driven system technologies, and are needed to ensure a link between high and low energy processes. Model calculations are consistent with some results, but at the moment no code is able to fully predict all the experimental data. Our results show the need of further investigation of neutron-induced reactions in this energy region, in particular to study the production of composite light ions.
