Determination of Solar System R-Process Abundances using ENDF/B-VIII.0 and TENDL-2015 libraries
Recent multi-messenger detection of the binary neutron star merger (GW170817) energized the astrophysical community and encouraged further research for determination of nuclear physics observables.
The ν-Process in the Light of an Improved Understanding of Supernova Neutrino Spectra
We study the neutrino-induced production of nuclides in explosive supernova nucleosynthesis for progenitor stars with solar metallicity including neutrino-nucleus reactions for all nuclei with charge
Heavy elements nucleosynthesis on accreting white dwarfs: building seeds for the p-process
The origin of the proton-rich trans-iron isotopes in the solar system is still uncertain. Single-degenerate thermonuclear supernovae (SNIa) with n-capture nucleosynthesis seeds assembled in the
Determination of the photodisintegration reaction rates involving charged particles: Systematic calculations and proposed measurements based on the facility for Extreme Light Infrastructure–Nuclear Physics
Photodisintegration reaction rates involving charged particles are of relevance to the p-process nucleosynthesis that aims at explaining the production of the stable neutron-deficient nuclides
Explosive Nucleosynthesis: What We Learned and What We Still Do Not Understand
This review touches on historical aspects, going back to the early days of nuclear astrophysics, initiated by B\(^2\)FH and Cameron, discusses (i) the required nuclear input from reaction rates and
Theoretical Estimate of the Half-life for the Radioactive 134Cs and 135Cs in Astrophysical Scenarios
We analyze the 55134 Cs →56134 Ba and 55135 Cs →56135 Ba β − decays, which are crucial production channels for Ba isotopes in asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars. We calculate, starting from
Prospects for direct neutron capture measurements on s-process branching point isotopes
Abstract.The neutron capture cross sections of several unstable key isotopes acting as branching points in the s -process are crucial for stellar nucleosynthesis studies, but they are very
Chemical evolution with rotating massive star yields II. A new assessment of the solar s- and r- process components
The decomposition of the Solar system abundances of heavy isotopes into their s- and r- components plays a key role in our understanding of the corresponding nuclear processes and the physics and


KADoNiS‐ The Karlsruhe Astrophysical Database of Nucleosynthesis in Stars
The “Karlsruhe Astrophysical Database of Nucleosynthesis in Stars” (KADoNiS) project is an online database for experimental cross sections relevant to the s process and p process. It is available
Previous compilations of (n, gamma) cross sections of relevance for neutron capture nucleosynthesis in the big bang and in the slow neutron capture process (s process) have been updated to encompass
Constraining the astrophysical origin of the p-nuclei through nuclear physics and meteoritic data.
The main part of the review focuses on the nuclear uncertainties involved in the determination of the astrophysical reaction rates required for the extended reaction networks used in nucleosynthesis studies.
Modern models of s-process nucleosynthesis in stars require stellar reaction rates of high precision. Most neutron-capture cross-sections in the s-process have been measured, and for an increasing
Suppression of the stellar enhancement factor and the reaction 85Rb(p,n)85Sr
Astrophysical reaction rates are central to tracing changes in the abundances of nuclei by nuclear reactions. They provide the temperature- and density-dependent coefficients entering reaction
Neutron capture cross section of unstable 63Ni: implications for stellar nucleosynthesis.
Stellar model calculations for a 25M⊙ star show that the new data have a significant effect on the s-process production of 63Cu, 64Ni, and 64Zn in massive stars, allowing stronger constraints on the Cu yields from explosive nucleosynthesis in the subsequent supernova.
Astrophysical reaction rates from statistical model calculations
Theoretical reaction rates in the temperature range 0.01 x 10(9) less than or equal to T(K) less than or equal to 10.0 x 10(9) are calculated in the statistical model (Hauser-Feshbach formalism) for
Critical Reactions in Contemporary Nuclear Astrophysics
Nuclear reaction rates play a critical role in the understanding of stellar evolution and explosions. However, in many cases nuclear reaction rates still carry large uncertainties due to the paucity
