The present rate of the 25Al(p,γ)26Si reaction suffers from significant uncertainties due to the lack of relevant structure information in the compound nucleus 26Si. An 25Al+p elastic-scattering experiment in inverse kinematics was performed using the CRIB facility at the CNS at the University of Tokyo, Japan, to try and improve current understanding. The 2H(24Mg,n)25Al reaction was used to produce a 7.5 MeV/A 25Al radioactive beam with intensities of ∼ 106 pps at the secondary CH2 target position. Protons were detected in silicon EΔE telescopes and a center-of-mass energy range of 3 MeV was scanned, reaching up to about 8.5 MeV in excitation energy in 26Si.
