The γ-process in core-collapse and/or type Ia supernova explosions is thought
to explain the origin of the majority of the so-called p nuclei (the 35 protonrich
isotopes between Se and Hg). Reaction rates for γ-process reaction network
studies have to be predicted using Hauser–Feshbach statistical model
calculations. Recent investigations have shown problems in the prediction of
α-widths at astrophysical energies which are an essential input for the statistical
model. It has an impact on…

A simple barrier transmission model is suggested and it is shown that this simple model in combination with a well-chosen α-nucleus potential is able to predict total α-induced reaction cross sections for a wide range of heavy target nuclei above A≳150 with uncertainties below a factor of 2.

Since Coulomb excitation does not affect α emission, the 148Gd(γ,α) rate is much higher than previously assumed, which leads to very small 146Sm/144Sm stellar production ratios, in even more pronounced conflict with the meteorite data.
