Production of 7Li is linked to the production of 7Be, which in turn, is related to the reaction 3He + 4He --> 7Be + γ. Measuring this reaction rate is of utmost importance to shed light on 7Li abundance anomaly. A new approach to measuring the reaction rate could be measuring the reverse reaction of Coulomb dissociation of 7Be, preferably in the presence of a heavy target. A related experiment for resonance excitation in 7Be + d reaction, proposed by us, is already approved (INTC–P–350) at HIE-ISOLDE.
