  1. Abstract

    The20Ne(α,p)23Na reaction rate is important in determining the final abundances of various nuclei produced in type Ia supernovae. Previously, the ground state cross section was calculated from time reversal reaction experiments using detailed balance. The reaction rates extracted from these studies do not consider contributions from the population of excited states, and therefore, are only estimates. A resonance scan, populating both the ground and first excited states, was performed for the20Ne(α,p)23Na reaction, measuring between 2.9 and 5 MeV center of mass energies at the Nuclear Science Lab at the University of Notre Dame. Data analysis is underway and preliminary results show substantial contribution from the excited state reaction.
