A novel method for extracting absolute resonance strengths has been investigated. By implanting Ne22 ions into a thick aluminum backing and simultaneously measuring the Ne22+p and Al27+p reactions, the strength of the Erlab=479 keV resonance in Ne22(p,γ)Na23 was determined to be ωγ=0.524(51) eV. This result has significantly reduced uncertainties compared to earlier work. Our results are important for the absolute normalizations of resonance strengths in the Ne22(p,γ)Na23 hydrogen-burning reaction and in the Ne22+α s-process neutron-source reactions.
