We have developed a new experimental technique to measure very low energy protons from β‐delayed p‐decay of proton‐rich nuclei produced and separated with the MARS recoil spectrometer at TAMU. Recently we have investigated the β‐delayed p‐decays of and and obtained information on the resonances in the reactions and respectively. These reactions are important in explosive H‐burning in Novae . A simple setup consisting of a telescope made of a thin double sided Si strip detector (p‐detector) backed or sandwiched between two thick Si detectors (β‐detectors) was designed. We studied two different p‐detectors and found that the thinner detectors with a small cell size are best to measure proton energies as low as 2–300 keV.
