The $^{20}$Ne$(p, \gamma)^{21}$Na reaction is the starting point of the NeNa cycle, which is an important process for the production of intermediate mass elements. The $E_{\text{cm}} = 1113$ keV resonance plays an important role in the determination of stellar rates for this reaction since it is used to normalize experimental direct capture yields at lower energies. The commonly accepted strength of this resonance, $\omega \gamma = 1.13 \pm 0.07$ eV, has been misinterpreted as the strength in…

Direct measurement of resonance strengths in 34 S(α ,γ ) 38 Ar at astrophysically relevant energies using the DRAGON recoil separator
Background: Nucleosynthesis of mid-mass elements is thought to occur under hot and explosive astrophysical conditions. Radiative α capture on S34 has been shown to impact nucleosynthesis in several

Radiative α capture on 34S has been shown to have an impact on nucleosynthesis in hot and explosive astrophysical environments, including stellar (core and shell) oxygen burning, Type II supernovae,
Urca nuclide production in Type-I X-ray bursts and implications for nuclear physics studies
The thermal structure of accreting neutron stars is affected by the presence of urca nuclei in the neutron star crust. Nuclear isobars harbouring urca nuclides can be produced in the ashes of Type
Design and commissioning of a timestamp-based data acquisition system for the DRAGON recoil mass separator
The DRAGON recoil mass separator at TRIUMF exists to study radiative proton and alpha capture reactions, which are important in a variety of astrophysical scenarios. DRAGON experiments require a data
The TRIUMF-ISAC facility: two decades of discovery with rare isotope beams
Since 1999, the TRIUMF-ISAC facility has been providing rare isotope beams for nuclear physics experiments. The three pillars of the program are nuclear structure, nuclear astrophysics, and

Nuclear astrophysics is, in essence, a science that attempts to understand and explain the physical universe beyond the Earth by studying its smallest particles. "Cauldrons in the Cosmos", by Claus
stopping and range of ions in solids
The stopping and range of ions in matter is physically very complex, and there are few simple approximations which are accurate. However, if modern calculations are performed, the ion distributions
