Cross section measurements of the Big Bang nucleosynthesis reaction D($\alpha,gamma)^6Li$ by Coulomb dissociation of $^6Li$

Abstract : The possibility that big-bang nucleosynthesis (BBN) may produce nontrivial amounts of 6Li is under study since the recent observations of this element in old halo stars. However, the interpretation of these observations needs a precise knowledge of the reaction rate of D(alpha, gamma)6Li which, at present, is extremely uncertain (a factor of 20) at the energies of astrophysical interest (Ecm <= 300 keV). This uncertainty originates from difficulties in both theoretical estimates and experimental determinations of the D(alpha, gamma)6Li capture reaction cross section. New measurements of the cross section of D($\alpha, gamma$)6Li reaction using Coulomb dissociation of 6Li at 150 A MeV have been performed recently at GSI. The results will be compared to previous measurements and theoretical calculations.
