  journal={arXiv: Nuclear Theory},
The importance of direct capture for (n,$\gamma$)--reactions on intermediate-- and heavy--mass target nuclei occuring in the s-- and r--process is investigated. It is shown that the direct mechanism is non--negligible for magic and neutron rich target nuclei. For some double magic and neutron rich nuclei in the r--process direct capture is even the dominant reaction mechanism.

Radiative capture on neutron-rich nuclei
The (n,(gamma) )-cross sections for neutron-rich oxygen isotopes have been calculated in the direct capture model. The experimental data for 18O(n,(gamma) )19O can be reproduced using this model.
The path to improved reaction rates for astrophysics
This review focuses on nuclear reactions in astrophysics and, more specifically, on reac- tions with light ions (nucleons andparticles) proceeding via the strong interaction. It is intended to
