Advanced burning stages and fate of 8-10 M⊙ STARS
The stellar mass range 8 {approx}< M/M{sub Sun} {approx}< 12 corresponds to the most massive asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars and the most numerous massive stars. It is host to a variety of
Evolution of nuclear shells due to the tensor force.
The monopole effect of the tensor force is presented, exhibiting how spherical single-particle energies are shifted as protons or neutrons occupy certain orbits. An analytic relation for such shifts
Novel features of nuclear forces and shell evolution in exotic nuclei.
Novel simple properties of the monopole component of effective nucleon-nucleon interactions are presented, leading to the so-called monopole-based universal interaction. Shell structures are shown to
Three-body forces and the limit of oxygen isotopes.
The first microscopic explanation of the oxygen anomaly based on three-nucleon forces that have been established in few-body systems is presented, which leads to repulsive contributions to the interactions among excess neutrons that change the location of the neutron drip line from (28)O to the experimentally observed (24)O.
Reaction cross sections at intermediate energies and Fermi-motion effect
Precise measurements of the reaction cross sections ($\ensuremath{\sigma}{}_{\mathrm{R}}$) for $^{12}\mathrm{C}$ on Be, C, and Al targets and $^{11}\mathrm{Be}$ on Be targets were performed in the
Evolution of shell structure in exotic nuclei
The atomic nucleus is a quantum many-body system whose constituent nucleons (protons and neutrons) are subject to complex nucleon-nucleon interactions that include spin- and isospin-dependent
Gamow-Teller transitions and magnetic properties of nuclei and shell evolution
New aspects of quenching of Gamow-Teller (GT) transitions and magnetic moments are investigated for p-shell nuclei using an improved shell-model Hamiltonian with enhanced spin-flip proton-neutron
Shell-model study of boron, carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen isotopes with a monopole-based universal interaction
We study boron, carbon, nitrogen and oxygen isotopes with a newly constructed shell-model Hamiltonian developed from monopole-based-universal interaction ($V_{MU}$). The present Hamiltonian can
Spin transport in non-degenerate Si with a spin MOSFET structure at room temperature
Spin transport in non-degenerate semiconductors is expected to pave a way to the creation of spin transistors, spin logic devices and reconfigurable logic circuits, because room temperature (RT) spin
Electron-capture and β-decay rates for nuclear pairs in the sd-shell are evaluated at high densities and high temperatures relevant to the final evolution of electron-degenerate O–Ne–Mg cores of
