Abstract

Abstract The Q-value of the 40Ca( α, γ) 44Ti reaction has been measured by comparing resonance α-particle and γ-ray energies to those of the prominent T = 3 2 resonance in the 15N( α, γ) 19F reaction, for which the Q-value is known with an accuracy of 0.12 keV. The result for the 40Ca( α, γ) 44Ti reaction is Q = 5127.1 ± 0.7 keV. It follows that the mass excess of 44Ti is −37549 ± 1 keV.
