The MARS group at TAMU has developed a new experimental technique to measure very low energy protons from β‐delayed proton‐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 and reactions, respectively. These reactions are important in explosive H‐burning in Novae . Recently an experiment looking at the β‐delayed p‐decay of was also done in order to obtain information on resonances in the reaction. 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 different W1 and BB2 p‐detectors made by MSL, and found that the thinner detectors with a small cell size are best to measure proton energies as low as 2–300 keV.
