Uncertainties in adopted models of particle+nucleus optical-model potentials directly influence the accuracy in the theoretical predictions of reaction rates as they are needed for reaction-network calculations in, for instance, {\gamma}-process nucleosynthesis. The improvement of the {\alpha}+nucleus optical-model potential is hampered by the lack of experimental data at astrophysically relevant energies especially for heavier nuclei.

Physical review letters
• 2020
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.

### The cross section calculation of 112Sn(α,γ)116Te reaction with different nuclear models at the astrophysical energy range

The theoretical cross section calculations for the astrophysical p process are needed because most of the related reactions are technically very difficult to be measured in the laboratory. Even if
