Core-collapse supernovae are the first polluters of heavy elements in the galactic history. As such, it is important to study the nuclear compositions of their ejecta, and understand their dependence on the progenitor structure (e.g., mass, compactness, metallicity). Here, we present a detailed nucleosynthesis study based on two long-term, two-dimensional core-collapse supernova simulations of a 11.2 Mlsubg⊙l/subg and a 17.0 Mlsubg⊙l/subg star. We find that in both models nuclei well beyond the… 

Nucleosynthesis of an 11.8 M ⊙ Supernova with 3D Simulation of the Inner Ejecta: Overall Yields and Implications for Short-lived Radionuclides in the Early Solar System

Based on a 3D supernova simulation of an 11.8 M ⊙ progenitor model with an initial solar composition, we study the nucleosynthesis using tracers covering the innermost 0.1 M ⊙ of the ejecta. These

PUSHing Core-collapse Supernovae to Explosions in Spherical Symmetry. IV. Explodability, Remnant Properties, and Nucleosynthesis Yields of Low-metallicity Stars

In this fourth paper of the series, we use the parameterized, spherically symmetric explosion method PUSH to perform a systematic study of two sets of nonrotating stellar progenitor models. Our study

PUSHing Core-collapse Supernovae to Explosions in Spherical Symmetry. III. Nucleosynthesis Yields

In a previously presented proof-of-principle study, we established a parameterized spherically symmetric explosion method (PUSH) that can reproduce many features of core-collapse supernovae (CCSNe)

Neutron Star Mergers Might Not Be the Only Source of r-process Elements in the Milky Way

Probing the origin of r-process elements in the universe represents a multidisciplinary challenge. We review the observational evidence that probes the properties of r-process sites, and address them

Nucleosynthesis in Supernovae

We present the status and open problems of nucleosynthesis in supernova explosions of both types, responsible for the production of the intermediate mass, Fe-group and heavier elements (with the

Post-explosion Evolution of Core-collapse Supernovae

We investigate the post-explosion phase in core-collapse supernovae with 2D hydrodynamical simulations and a simple neutrino treatment. The latter allows us to perform 46 simulations and follow the

Core-collapse Supernovae: From Neutrino-driven 1D Explosions to Light Curves and Spectra

We present bolometric and broadband light curves and spectra for a suite of core-collapse supernova models exploded self-consistently in spherical symmetry within the PUSH framework. We analyze broad

Origin of the heaviest elements: The rapid neutron-capture process

The production of about half of the heavy elements found in nature is assigned to a specific astrophysical nucleosynthesis process: the rapid neutron capture process (r-process). Although this idea

Enhanced triple-α reaction reduces proton-rich nucleosynthesis in supernovae.

In proton-rich core-collapse supernova outflows, hitherto neglected processes enhance the triple-α reaction rate by up to an order of magnitude, which suppression of heavy-element nucleosynthesis for realistic conditions casts doubt on the νp process being the explanation for the anomalously high abundances of 92,94Mo and 96,98Ru isotopes in the Solar System.

Titanium and Iron in the Cassiopeia A Supernova Remnant

Mixing above the proto-neutron star is believed to play an important role in the supernova engine, and this mixing results in a supernova explosion with asymmetries. Elements produced in the
