Nuclear clusters play a key role in the Trojan Horse Method for Nuclear Astrophysicsstudies. The Trojan Horse Method is an indirect technique to determine the astrophysical S(E) factorat ultra-low energies, free of Coulomb suppression and electron screening effect. Clustering makesit possible to use a few-body approach to derive a simple relationship between the measured 2 → 3cross section and that of the 2 → 2 cross section of interest for astrophysics. The basic features ofthe Trojan Horse Method will be discussed and some recent results will be presented.

Abstract

Nuclear clusters play a key role in the Trojan Horse Method for Nuclear Astrophysicsstudies. The Trojan Horse Method is an indirect technique to determine the astrophysical S(E) factorat ultra-low energies, free of Coulomb suppression and electron screening effect. Clustering makesit possible to use a few-body approach to derive a simple relationship between the measured 2 → 3cross section and that of the 2 → 2 cross section of interest for astrophysics. The basic features ofthe Trojan Horse Method will be discussed and some recent results will be presented.
