The recalculation of ωγ for the 21Ne(p, γ) reaction

Sodium 21


The 21Ne(p, γ) reaction has been carried out a few times at the DRAGON facility with the intent of calculating the resonant strength of the reaction. Two known resonant center of mass energies have been used for this reaction, that of 731.5 keV and 258 keV, but only the latter energy will be discussed here. This reaction was analyzed in Sabine Engel’s thesis, but a few problems were discovered that lead to the need to re-examine the data. These problems will be discussed later. This report will begin with the analysis of the most recent runs carried out with this reaction, and then will re-examine some old data that was analyzed in Sabine’s thesis.
