The rate of the $$^{25}$$Al(p, $$\gamma$$)$$^{26}$$Si reaction is one of the few key remaining nuclear uncertainties required for predicting the production of the cosmic $$\gamma$$-ray emitter $$^{26}$$Al in explosive burning in novae. This reaction rate is dominated by three key resonances ($$J^{\pi }=0^{+}$$, $$1^{+}$$ and $$3^{+}$$) in $$^{26}$$Si. Only the $$3^{+}$$ resonance strength has been directly constrained by experiment. A high resolution measurement of the $$^{25}$$Mg(d, p…
