Most of the elements heavier than iron have been and still are synthesized in neutron-induced in stars of different stages. However, some isotopes are primarily formed in the so-called p-process because they are shielded from the much more effective neutron-induced reactions. The qualitative description of the p-process requires large reaction networks. The most important components here are the proton-, alpha- and gamma-induced reactions and the associated β+-decays.
At the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) 103Rh(p,γ) capture events have been observed with the Karlsruhe 4π-BaF2-detector, which consists of up to 42 spherically arranged BaF2-crystals. The protons were accelerated with a pulsed 3.7 MV Van de Graaff accelerator to an energy of 3 MeV and fired on a metallic Rhodium target.
First results from the measurements an overview of the experimental setup will be presented. The experiment was supported by the HGF young investigator project VH-NG-327.
