Identification of new states in [Formula Presented] using the [Formula Presented] reaction and consequences for the [Formula Presented] reaction rate in explosive hydrogen burning environments

Journal Article (Journal Article)

We have studied the [Formula Presented] reaction and have identified new states in [Formula Presented] at [Formula Presented] and [Formula Presented] Based on these measurements and other recent evidence, we suggest spin-parity assignments of [Formula Presented] for the 5.678 MeV state and [Formula Presented] for the 5.945 MeV state, which would account for all the “missing” unnatural parity states in [Formula Presented] in the excitation energy region important to hydrogen burning in novae. New reaction rates are presented for the [Formula Presented] reaction based on this possible assignment of states. © 2002 The American Physical Society.
