Low-Energy Nuclear Astrophysics - the Fascinating Region of A=7
Argonne Physics Division Seminar - 8 Jan 2007

We discuss results of low-energy reactions that play an important role in current nuclear astrophysics research and that happen to concentrate around the region of A=7. The 7Be(p,γ)8B and the 3He(4He,γ)7Be reactions are crucial for understanding the solar-neutrino oscillations phenomenon and the latter one plays a central role in the issue of cosmic 7Li abundance and Big-Bang Nucleosynthesis. We also present results regarding the host dependence of the half life of the electron-capture 7Be radio-nuclide and plans for future experiments with radioactive beams.
