Abstract

The cross sections of (151)Eu(alpha, gamma)(155)Tb and (151)Eu(alpha,n)(154)Tb reactions have been measured with the activation method. Some aspects of the measurement are presented here to illustrate the requirements of experimental techniques needed to obtain nuclear data for the astrophysical p-process nucleosynthesis. Preliminary cross section results are also presented and compared with the predictions of statistical model calculations.
