Lowest I = 0 Proton Resonance in 26Si and Implications for Nucleosynthesis of 26 Al
Physical Review C
Using a beam of the radioactive isotope 25Al, produced with the new RESOLUT facility, we measured the direct (d,n) proton-transfer reaction leading to low-lying proton resonances in 26Si. We observed the lowest l=0 proton resonance, identified with the 3+ state at 5.914-MeV excitation energy. This result eliminates the largest uncertainty in astrophysical reaction rates involved in the nucleosynthesis of 26Al.
