A cross section measurement employing a direct 16O detection method for the reaction energies from E cm = 2.4 to 0.7 MeV is planned at Kyushu University Tandem Laboratory. To perform this experiment and to obtain quantitative information about the cross section to within an error of 10%, we have developed several instruments, including a blow-in type windowless gas target and a ionization chamber. A target thickness of 24 × 3.9 Torr cm was achieved using the developed gas target. The particle identification was successfully performed by using the energy deposit in the ionization chamber. Experiments were performed at E cm = 2.4 and 1.5 MeV using the developed instruments and the cross sections were obtained.
