The Gamow-Teller strength distribution function, B(GT), for the odd Z parent 51V, N−Z=5, up to 30 MeV of excitation energy in the daughter 51Ti is calculated in the domain of proton-neutron Quasiparticle Random Phase Approximation (pn-QRPA) theory. The pn-QRPA results are compared against other theoretical calculations, (n, p) and high resolution (d, 2He) reaction experiments. For the case of (d, 2He) reaction the calibration was performed for 0≤Ej≤5.0 MeV, where the authors stressed that…

Lepton capture rates due to isotopes of vanadium in astrophysical environment

Lepton (electron and positron) capture rates on iron-regime nuclei are an essential element for modeling the late stages of progression of massive stars that become core collapse and thermonuclear

Energy rates due to weak decay rates of vanadium isotopes in stellar environment

The neutrino cooling and gamma heating rates are considered as an important input needed to study the final phases of the evolution of high-mass stars. The weak-interaction mediated processes, namely



Gamow-Teller strength distribution in proton-rich nucleus 57Zn and its implications in astrophysics

Gamow-Teller (GT) transitions play a preeminent role in the collapse of stellar core in the stages leading to a Type-II supernova. The microscopically calculated GT strength distributions from ground

Weak-interaction-mediated rates on iron isotopes for presupernova evolution of massive stars

During the presupernova evolution of massive stars, the isotopes of iron, 54, 55, 56Fe , are advocated to play a key role inside the cores primarily decreasing the electron-to-baryon ratio (Ye)

Expanded calculations of proton–neutron quasi-particle random phase approximation (pn-QRPA) electron capture rates on 55Co for presupernova and supernova physics

Because of its abundance and its relatively high capture rates, 55Co is one of the key nuclide that can control the dynamics of core collapse of a massive star. Previously we introduced our
