Abstract

A Monte Carlo code has been developed to simulate resonant scattering reactions using the thick gas target technique in inverse kinematics. Results are presented for the 4He(20Ne,α)20Ne reaction at 70 MeV, and compared to an experimental measurement which utilised an array of segmented silicon strip detectors. In the case studied, angular straggling in the chamber window is found to dominate the excitation energy resolution.
