The cross sections of the astrophysically relevant 85Rb(p,n) 85Srg,m reaction have been measured between E c.m. = 2.16 and 3.96 MeV. The cross sections have been derived by measuring the γ radiation following the β decay of the reaction products. A comparison with the predictions of Hauser-Feshbach calculations using the NON-SMOKER code confirms a recently derived modification of the global optical proton potential.
