Abstract

Abstract Measurements have been made of the 96Zr(p,γ) 97Nb, 112Sn(p,γ) 113Sb, and 119Sn(p,γ) 120Sb cross section excitation functions. Incident proton energies ranged from 2.8 MeV to 8.5 MeV. These reactions are relevant to several processes of stellar nucleosynthesis. The resulting astrophysical S-factors are compared to those from theoretical statistical model calculations using the SMOKER, and the more recent NON-SMOKER, codes to judge their applicability to these reactions.
