For the synthesis of the heavy, proton rich isotopes in the astrophysical γ-process the precise knowledge of α-induced cross sections is of high importance. We have initiated a comprehensive study of the 64Zn + α system involving the cross section measurement of different reaction channels as well as the elastic scattering at low, astrophysically relevant energies. In this paper the experimental technique and some preliminary results of the 64Zn(α,p)67Ga cross section measurement are presented.
