An exclusive measurement of the breakup of Li-7 incident on a proton target was performed at 38.1 MeV (5.44 MeV/nucleon), probing the direct part of the excitation to the continuum. The two cluster constituents of Li-7, He-4, and H-3, were recorded in coincidence in the MAGNEX spectrometer and a silicon detector respectively. Both detection systems were set at forward angles and the measurement of both kinematical solutions allowed the determination of a breakup angular distribution over a wide angular range in the center-of-mass frame. Comprehensive simulations provided the detection efficiency of the system and via the appropriate kinematics the transformation of the cross sections from the laboratory to the center-of-mass reference frame. The experimental results are analyzed and discussed together with previous elastic scattering data using the Continuum Discretized Coupled Channels (CDCC) framework and are found to be in satisfactory agreement. It was found that while the breakup cross section was dominated by the nonresonant component, the most important influence on the elastic scattering was due to coupling to the 7/2(-) resonance of Li-7.
