Abstract

The low energy part of the beta delayed, alpha spectrum of ^(16)N can be used to determine the p-wave capture amplitude of the astrophysically important reaction ^(12)C(α ;y)^(16)O. Experimental details of a measurement of the emitted a spectrum in coincidence with the ^(12)C recoil nuclei, performed at the TRIUMF isotope separator, TISOL is presented.
