We report an abundance analysis for the highly r -process-enhanced ( r -II) star CS 29497-004, a very metal-poor giant with solar system T eff = 5013 K and [Fe/H] = −2.85, whose nature was initially discovered in the course of the HERES project. Our analysis is based on high signal-to-noise ratio, high-resolution ( R ~ 75 000) VLT/UVES spectra and MARCS model atmospheres under the assumption of local thermodynamic equilibrium, and obtains abundance measurements for a total of 46 elements, 31 of…

Neutron-capture elements in dwarf galaxies
The heavy elements (Z >  30) are created in neutron (n)-capture processes that are predicted to happen at vastly different nucleosynthetic sites. To study these processes in an environment different
Abundance patterns of the light neutron-capture elements in very and extremely metal-poor stars
We measured new abundances of so-called light neutron-capture of first peak elements using local thermodynamic equilibrium (LTE) 1D analysis; this analysis resulted in a sample of 11 very metal-poor
