Abstract

The 17O(p,α)14N reaction is of paramount importance for the nucleosynthesis in a number of stellar sites, including red giants (RG), asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars, massive stars and classical novae. We report on the indirect study of the 17O(p,α)14N reaction via the Trojan Horse Method by applying the approach recently developed for extracting the resonance strength of the narrow resonance at Ec.m.R = 65 keV (EX =5.673 MeV). The strength of the 65 keV resonance in the 17O(p,α)14N reaction, measured by means of the THM, has been used to renormalize the corresponding resonance strength in the 17O+p radiative capture channel.
