Photodisintegration reaction rates involving charged particles are of relevance to the p-process nucleosynthesis that aims at explaining the production of the stable neutron-deficient nuclides heavier than iron. In this study, the cross sections and astrophysical rates of (g,p) and (g,a) reactions for about 3000 target nuclei with 10<Z<100 ranging from stable to proton dripline nuclei are computed. To study the sensitivity of the calculations to the optical model potentials (OMPs), both the…

Nuclear resonance fluorescence drug inspection
TLDR
This study presents a novel inspection method that can simultaneously reveal the elemental composition of the illicit drugs, such as widely abused methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin, ketamine and morphine, using nuclear resonance fluorescence (NRF) spectroscopy and the element (or isotope) ratio approach.
