Preparation for direct measurement of 12C+4He→ 16O+γ reaction at stellar energy has been made in Kyushu University tandem laboratory (KUTL) since 1914. We plan to measure the reaction at Ecm = 2.4-0.7 MeV where the cross section is estimated to be 60 nbarn-1pbarn. Many instrumental developments have been made for a 12C beam, a windowless helium gas target, 16O detection, background reduction. We started the measurement in 2006.
