The neutron capture cross section of 26Mg was measured relative to the known gold cross section at thermonuclear energies using the fast cyclic activation technique. The experiment was performed at the 3.75 MV Van-de-Graaff accelerator, Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe. The experimental capture cross section is the sum of resonant and direct contributions. For the resonance at E(n,lab) = 220 keV our new results are in disagreement with the data from Weigmann et al. An improved Maxwellian averaged…

Resonance neutron-capture cross sections of stable magnesium isotopes and their astrophysical implications

We have measured the neutron capture cross sections of the stable magnesium isotopes {sup 24,25,26}Mg in the energy range of interest to the s process using the neutron time-of-flight facility

Systematic study of neutron capture including the compound, pre-equilibrium, and direct mechanisms

The neutron capture reaction is investigated. The three major reaction mechanisms, namely, compound-nucleus capture (CNC), pre-equilibrium capture (PEC), and direct capture (DIC), are considered on

Low-energy direct capture in the8Li(n,γ)9Liand8B(p,γ)9Creactions

The cross sections of the 8Li(n,gamma)9Li and 8B(p,gamma)9C capture reactions have been analyzed using the direct capture model. At low energies which is the astrophysically relevant region the

Extracting the complex energy of broad resonances by the S-matrix pole method

A new method is proposed for finding the resonance parameters of a nuclear system, obtained from the phase shift analysis of elastic scattering data, by means of a pole representation of an S-matrix

Bound, virtual and resonance S-matrix poles from the Schrodinger equation

A general method, which we call the potential S-matrix pole method, is developed for obtaining the S-matrix pole parameters for bound, virtual, and resonant states based on numerical solutions of the
