D’Auria, J.M., Azuma, R.E., Bishop, S. et al. (23 more authors) (2004) The 21Na(p,gamma)22Mg reaction from Ec.m. = 200 to 1103 keV in novae and x-ray bursts. Physical Review C, 69 (6). Art. No. 065803. ISSN 1089-490X
The long-lived radioactive nuclide 22Na (t1∕2=2.6 yr) is an astronomical observable for understanding the physical processes of oxygen-neon novae. Yields of 22Na in these events are sensitive to the unknown total rate of the 21Na(p,γ)22Mg reaction. Using a high intensity 21Na beam at the TRIUMF-ISAC facility, the strengths of seven resonances in 22Mg , of potential astrophysical importance, have been directly measured at center of mass energies from Ec.m.=200 to 1103 keV . We report the results obtained for these resonances and their respective contributions to the 21Na(p,γ)22Mg rate in novae and x-ray bursts, and their impact on 22Na production in novae.
