The 30S(α,p)33Cl reaction may have a significant impact on final elemental abundances and energy output of type I X-ray bursts, as well as influencing observables such as double-peaked luminosity profiles, because it could bypass the 30S waiting point. This reaction has been studied experimentally for the first time in inverse kinematics via the time-inverse reaction 1H(33Cl,30S)α with a 33Cl radioactive ion beam produced at the Argonne Tandem Linac Accelerator System facility by the "in-flight" technique. This reaction was studied at three different beam energies. The experimental method used and the resulting data are discussed. © 2011 American Physical Society.
