Abstract

Low-energy resonances in 31P(p, α28Si and 35Cl(p, α)32S were studied directly in order to gain a better understanding of reaction cycling in the Si-Ar region in novae. New resonance strengths at Ec.m. = 600 and 622 keV in 31P(p, α)28Si were measured (ωγp, α = (2.2#x00B1;0.7) × 10−2 eV and ωγp, α = (0.99±0.08) eV, respectively) as well as the Ec.m. = 610 keV resonance in 35Cl(p, α)32S [ωγp, α = (1.2±0.2) × 10−2 eV], the lowest energy that any resonance in this reaction has been observed, directly or indirectly. The strengths of these resonances were found to be lower than previously determined, resulting in even weaker cycling in the Si-Ar region.
