The rates of certain nuclear reactions involving neutron-deficient nuclei are important in explosive astrophysical environments. Measurements using radioactive beams are improving our understanding of these reaction rates, but the relatively low intensity of the available beams requires some creative experimental approaches involving both direct and indirect techniques. We will present an overview of recent measurements of interest for X-ray Bursts using in-flight radioactive ion beams of 17F, 18Ne and 19Ne with the Array for Nuclear Astrophysics and Structure with Exotic Nuclei (ANASEN) or ResoNeut at Florida State University. This work is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Nuclear Physics and the U.S. National Science Foundation.
