Instrumentation
• We develop and utilize charged-particle detection systems for direct and indirect studies of reactions that power novae and X-ray bursts

• We develop and utilize recoil separator systems for measurements of capture and transfer reactions

• We develop and utilize neutron detection systems for indirect studies of astrophysically important reactions

• We develop and utilize windowless H / He gas target systems for measurement of reactions induced by p, 3He, and 4He
