Background: $\ensuremath{\alpha}$-nucleus optical potentials are basic ingredients of statistical model calculations used in nucleosynthesis simulations. While the nucleon+nucleus optical potential is fairly well known, for the $\ensuremath{\alpha}$+nucleus optical potential several different parameter sets exist and large deviations, reaching sometimes even an order of magnitude, are found between the cross section predictions calculated using different parameter sets.Purpose: A measurement of…

TLDR
Strong evidence is found for a model of the {ital E}1 strength function, which is characterized by an energy dependent spreading width of the underlying Lorentzian for the photoabsorption cross section and a nonzero, temperature dependent, limit as the transition energy tends to zero.

TLDR
The astrophysical $r$-process occurs in an explosive astrophysical event under extremely neutron-rich conditions, leading to equilibrium along isotopic chains which peaks around neutron separation energies of few MeV.
