In order to test the reliability of reaction rate calculations in the framework of the Hauser-Feshbach statistical model, the cross sections of Cd-106(alpha,gamma)Sn-110 radiative capture reaction were determined in the energy range close to the Gamow window for the astrophysical p-process scenario. In addition, to reduce the errors in the predictions of the statistical model calculations, the relevant optical potential parameters are to be determined from the angular distribution measurement of the Cd-106(alpha, alpha) Cd-106 elastic scattering reaction at low energies.
