The Trojan Horse Method (THM) has been applied extensively for the last 25 years to measure nuclear reaction cross sections of interest for astrophysics. Although it has been mainly applied for charged particle -induced reactions, recently it has been found to have also a relevant role for neutron -induced reactions. Here, some advantages of THM will be discussed and the preliminary results of the cosmological relevant Be-7(n,alpha)(4) He cross section measurement are discussed.

Abstract

The Trojan Horse Method (THM) has been applied extensively for the last 25 years to measure nuclear reaction cross sections of interest for astrophysics. Although it has been mainly applied for charged particle -induced reactions, recently it has been found to have also a relevant role for neutron -induced reactions. Here, some advantages of THM will be discussed and the preliminary results of the cosmological relevant Be-7(n,alpha)(4) He cross section measurement are discussed.
