¹²C+¹²C reactions at astrophysical energies: tests of targets behaviour under beam bombardment
¹²C(¹²C,α)²⁰Ne and ¹²C(¹²C,p)²³Na are the most important reactions during the carbon burning phase in stars. Direct measurements at the relevant astrophysical energy (E=1.5±0.3MeV) are very challenging because of the extremely small cross sections involved and of the high beam-induced background originating from impurities in the targets. In addition, persistent resonant structures at low energies are not well understood and make the extrapolation of the cross section from high energy data very...[Show more]
