The 26gAl(p,γ)27Si reaction in novae
The 184 keV resonance strength in the 26gAl(p,γ) 27Si reaction was measured in inverse kinematics using the DRAGON facility at TRIUMF-ISAC. We obtain a value of γ=35±7 μeV for the strength and ER=184±1 keV for the resonance energy. These values are consistent with p-wave capture into the 7652(3) keV state in 27Si. We discuss the implications of these results for 26gAl nucleosynthesis in a typical O-Ne white dwarf nova. © Copyright owned by the author(s).
