  • Abstract Alpha-rich freezeouts in matter near the mass cut in supernovae, aided by neutrino-induced reactions, can strongly produce the light p-isotopes 92,94 Mo, whose provenance is currently not well understood. If such alpha-rich freezeouts are responsible for the bulk of the solar system's supply of these isotopes, then they also robustly produce radioactive 92 Nb, which would lead to a steady-state ratio of 92 Nb 93 Nb in the interstellar medium higher than inferred to have been present in… CONTINUE READING
