Abstract

A thin-window gas target system was designed in order to fulfill the requirements of the measurement of low energy α-induced reaction cross-sections relevant for nuclear astrophysics using the activation method. The properties of the gas cell system, its characterization and the results of the first feasibility studies on the 3He(α,γ) 7Be and 124Xe(α,γ)128Ba reactions are summarized.
