Abstract

Nuclear astrophysics using radioactive nuclear beams is one of the major research topics in Louvain-la-Neuve. Recently, experiment aiming at the measurement of (alpha,gamma), and (alpha, p) reactions have been performed. The O-15(alpha, gamma)Ne-19 reaction was studied using an indirect method bused on the study of the Ne-18(d, p)Ne-19(*). Preliminary results of a new analysis of this experiment are presented here.

The new mass recoil separator ARES, coupled to the new cyclotron CYCLONE-44, is now operational. The ARES project status and results of performance tests are reported here.
