Reverse engineering nuclear properties from rare earth abundances in the r process

  title={Reverse engineering nuclear properties from rare earth abundances in the r process},
  author={Matthew R. Mumpower and Gail McLaughlin and Rebecca Surman},
The bulk of the rare earth elements are believed to be synthesized in the rapid neutron capture process or r process of nucleosynthesis. The solar r-process residuals show a small peak in the rare earths around A 160 _ , which is proposed to be formed dynamically during the end phase of the r process by a pileup of material. This abundance feature is of particular importance as it is sensitive to both the nuclear physics inputs and the astrophysical conditions of the main r process. We explore… CONTINUE READING
