Investigation of Alpha-Induced Reactions on 107Ag at Astrophysical Energies
Güray, R. T.

Cross sections of the 107Ag(α, γ)111In and 107Ag(α,n)110In reactions have been measured with the activation method at effective center-of-mass energies between 7.79 MeV and 12.00 MeV close to the astrophysical energy range. The irradiation and counting of the 107Ag targets was carried out at ATOMKI using the cyclotron accelerator and the low background counting facility, respectively. Cross section results are presented and compared with the predictions of Hauser-Feshbach statistical model calculations using the NON-SMOKER and TALYS-1.4 codes. In general, above 10 MeV, the model calculation are able to reproduce reasonably well the experimental data, but below 10 MeV, depending on some input parameters strong deviations are also found.
