Abstract
We have measured the dissociation of 8B in the Coulomb field of 208Pb at $E_{\rm in}$=51.9 MeV/nucleon and extracted the cross section of the 7Be(p,$\gamma$)8B reaction at 0.4 $\leq E_{\rm rel} \leq$ 3 MeV, which is of importance for the 8B solar-neutrino production rate. The extracted astrophysical S17 factors are consistent with our earlier Coulomb dissociation measurement, and agree with the values deduced from the direct capture measurements by Filippone et al., Vaughn et al. and Hammache et al. The S factor at zero energy was extracted to be 18.9$\pm$1.8 eV-b with the help of theoretical energy-dependence.
