Abstract / Description of output

F radioactive beams were used to measure the F(p,α) reaction in the c.m. energy ranges of 265-535 keV and 550-740 keV. In each case, a resonant level was clearly detected, of which the resonant strength and some other properties were deduced. The astrophysical reaction rate was calculated down to the novae peak temperature. Consequences for the hot CNO cycles were drawn.
