    • Abstract

       

      The total cross-section for the reaction51V(p, n)51Cr has been measured fromEp 1.9 to 4.5 MeV by using two different techniques: (i) by detecting the neutron using the 4π neutron counter and (ii) by measuring the activity of the residual nucleus51Cr. The two measurements are consistent with each other and together they are in good agreement with the data of Zyskindet al. The thermonuclear reaction rates have also been extracted starting from these cross-sections.
