Measurement of alpha-induced reaction cross section on Ru-isotopes

One major nuclear-physics uncertainty for the prediction of branching points in the γ-process reaction network is the α+nucleus optical model potential at sub-Coulomb energies. To improve the scarce experimental database of α-induced reaction cross sections, our group is interested in measuring the (α,γ) cross sections on ruthenium isotopes via the 4π-summing method at RUBION. We plan to measure the cross section at alpha energies from 12 MeV down to ca. 7 MeV.
