Background: Astrophysical reaction rates, which are mostly derived from theoretical cross sections, are necessary input to nuclear reaction network simulations for studying the origin of p nuclei. Past experiments have found a considerable difference between theoretical and experimental cross sections in some cases, especially for (alpha,gamma) reactions at low energy. Therefore, it is important to experimentally test theoretical cross section predictions at low, astrophysically relevant energies.
