Calculation of Cross-sections and Astrophysical S-Factors for 62Ni(α,n) and 62Ni(α,γ) Reactions of Structural Fusion Material Nickel
AbstractNickel is an important element in fusion reactor technologies and astrophysical applications. Therefore, the knowledge of astrophysical S-factors and cross-sections on nickel isotopes is
Measurement of (α,n) reaction crosssections of erbium isotopes for testingastrophysical rate predictions
The γ-process in core-collapse and/or type Ia supernova explosions is thought to explain the origin of the majority of the so-called p nuclei (the 35 protonrich isotopes between Se and Hg).
Successful Prediction of Total α-Induced Reaction Cross Sections at Astrophysically Relevant Sub-Coulomb Energies Using a Novel Approach.
A simple barrier transmission model is suggested and it is shown that this simple model in combination with a well-chosen α-nucleus potential is able to predict total α-induced reaction cross sections for a wide range of heavy target nuclei above A≳150 with uncertainties below a factor of 2.
Cross section of α -induced reactions on Au197 at sub-Coulomb energies
Statistical model calculations have to be used for the determination of reaction rates in large-scale reaction networks for heavy-element nucleosynthesis. A basic ingredient of such a calculation is
Theoretical investigation of cross sections and astrophysical S-factors for the 92Mo(α,n)95Ru and 94Mo(α,n)97Ru reactions

The production of proton-rich isotopes beyond iron: The γ-process in stars
Beyond iron, a small fraction of the total abundances in the Solar System is made of proton-rich isotopes, the p-nuclei. The clear understanding of their production is a fundamental challenge for

Solution of the α-potential mystery in the γ process and its impact on the Nd/Sm ratio in meteorites.
Since Coulomb excitation does not affect α emission, the 148Gd(γ,α) rate is much higher than previously assumed, which leads to very small 146Sm/144Sm stellar production ratios, in even more pronounced conflict with the meteorite data.
