Neutron capture cross-sections have been calculated in nuclei near the N=82 neutron shell closure. These nuclei are of astrophysical interest, participating in s-process and p-process. A semi-microscopic optical model have been used with the potential being obtained through folding the target density with the DDM3Y nucleon nucleon interaction. Theoretical density values have been calculated in the relativistic mean field approach. The calculated cross-section, as a function of neutron energy…

Neutron-rich nuclei and neutron stars: a new accurately calibrated interaction for the study of neutron-rich matter.

An accurately calibrated relativistic parametrization is introduced to compute the ground state properties of finite nuclei, their linear response, and the structure of neutron stars, and it produces an equation of state that is considerably softer--both for symmetric nuclear matter and for the symmetry energy.
