Abstract

The Ne(p,γ)Na as well as the Ne(d,n)Na reaction have been studied in inverse kinematics using Ne radioactive beams. Upper and lower limits for the Ne(p,γ)Na astrophysical reaction rate have been deduced, for the first time on the basis of direct experimental data. It is concluded that the transition from the hot-CNO cycle to the rp-process in explosive hydrogen burning is most likely governed by the preceeding O(a,γ)Ne reaction.
