Background: The reaction O-18(alpha, n)Ne-21 is a part of the reaction chains leading to the production of F-19 and Ne-22 during He burning in low-mass and massive AGB stars, respectively. Additionally, it has been observed as a strong background source in the measurement of other (alpha, n) reactions.
