Abstract

The F(p,γ)Ne reaction is important for understanding nucleosynthesis in novae. This reaction rate is expected to be dominated by the unmeasured direct-capture cross section at nova temperatures. We have measured cross sections for the proton-transfer reaction N(F,Ne)C to determine F+p asymptotic normalization coefficients for Ne bound states and the F(p, γ)Ne direct-capture cross section. Elastic scattering cross sections for the N(F,F) N and C(F,F) C reactions were also measured and used to determine reliable optical-model parameters within the framework of a microscopic double-folding model. Here we present the technique and some preliminary results.
