In my presentation, I will discuss the use of transfer reactions as an indirect method of determining information important for nuclear astrophysics. Specifically, I will focus on peripheral reactions and their analysis with the Asymptotic Normalization Coefficients (ANC) method. I will present results from related experiments that have been conducted at the Cyclotron Institute, Texas A&M University with focus on the 0ptical Model Parameters obtained and the need for reliable calculations. Additionally, I will describe the im- provements in the measured data that we obtained after upgrading the detection system used.
