# Kinematically complete measurement of the [Formula Presented] excitation function for the astrophysically important 7.08-MeV state in [Formula Presented]

#### Abstract

Knowledge of the astrophysical [Formula Presented] rate is important for understanding gamma-ray emission from novae and heavy-element production in x-ray bursts. A state with [Formula Presented] in [Formula Presented] provides an s-wave resonance and, depending on its properties, could dominate the [Formula Presented] rate. By measuring a kinematically complete [Formula Presented] excitation function with a radioactive [Formula Presented] beam at the ORNL Holifield Radioactive Ion Beam Facility, we find that the [Formula Presented] state lies at a center-of-mass energy of [Formula Presented] has a total width of [Formula Presented] and a proton partial-width of [Formula Presented]. © 2000 The American Physical Society.
