We have performed p-process simulations with the most recent stellar (n, gamma) cross sections from the Karlsruhe Astrophysical Database of Nucleosynthesis in Stars project (version v0.2, http://nuclear-astrophysics.fzk.de/kadonis). The simulations were carried out with a parametrized supernova type II shock front model (`gamma-process`) of a 25 solar mass star and compared to recently published results. A decrease in the normalized overproduction factor could be attributed to lower cross…

The r-, p-, and νp-Process
The processes discussed in this review are three of the four nucleosynthesis processes involved in producing heavy nuclei beyond Fe (not counting the rp-process in X-ray bursts). Opposite to the
Alpha-induced reaction cross section measurements on $^{151}$Eu for the astrophysical $\gamma$-process
In order to extend the experimental database relevant for the astrophysical -process towards the unexplored heavier mass region, the cross sections of the 151 Eu(�,) 155 Tb and 151 Eu(�,n) 154 Tb
Role of core-collapse supernovae in explaining Solar System abundances of p nuclides
The production of the heavy stable proton-rich isotopes between 74Se and 196Hg -- the p nuclides -- is due to the contribution from different nucleosynthesis processes, activated in different types
Production of the p-Process Nuclei in the Carbon-Deflagration Model for Type Ia Supernovae
We calculate nucleosynthesis of proton-rich isotopes in the carbon-deflagration model for Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia). The seed abundances are obtained by calculating the s-process nucleosynthesis
Study of the (p, γ) and (α, γ) reactions for 96,98,104Ru and 112,114,116Sn at astrophysically relevant energies
Cross section and S factor of the proton- and alpha-induced reactions have been studied for the Ruthenium and tin isotopes in the effective energy range, i.e. Gamow window. These reactions are
Type Ia supernovae as sites of the p-process: two-dimensional models coupled to nucleosynthesis
Beyond Fe, there is a class of 35 proton-rich nuclides, between 74Se and 196Hg, called p-nuclei. They are bypassed by the s and r neutron capture processes and are typically 10-1000 times less
An ERC Starting Grant project on p-process nucleosynthesis concluded
In 2008 a Starting Grant project supported by the European Research Council titled "Nuclear reaction studies relevant to the astrophysical p-process nucleosynthesis" was launched. After five years of
Systematic study of proton capture rates for Mo and Cd isotopes
Abstract.Proton capture reactions play a very important role in the understanding of nucleosynthesis. In the present work, p-capture reactions have been studied coherently with nuclear structure for


Sensitivity of p-process nucleosynthesis to nuclear reaction rates in a 25 M. supernova model
The astrophysical p-process, which is responsible for the origin of the proton-rich stable nuclei heavier than iron, was investigated using a full nuclear reaction network for a Type II supernova
Neutrino-induced nucleosynthesis of A>64 nuclei: the nu p process.
In this process, antineutrino absorptions in the proton-rich environment produce neutrons that are immediately captured by neutron-deficient nuclei, allowing for the nucleosynthesis of nuclei with mass numbers A>64, , making this process a possible candidate to explain the origin of the solar abundances of (92,94)Mo and (96,98)Ru.
Nucleosynthesis in massive stars with improved nuclear and stellar physics
We present the first calculations to follow the evolution of all stable nuclei and their radioactive progeni- tors in stellar models computed from the onset of central hydrogen burning through
The nu-process
As the core of a massive star collapses to form a neutron star, the flux of neutrinos in the overlying shells of heavy elements becomes so great that, despite the small cross section, substantial
Tables of nuclear cross sections and reaction rates : An addendum to the paper "Astrophysical reaction rates from statistical model calculations"
In a previous publication (ATOMIC DATA AND NUCLEAR DATA TABLES 75, 1 (2000)), we gave seven-parameter analytical fits to theoretical reaction rates derived from nuclear cross sections calculated in
Dependence of direct neutron capture on nuclear-structure models
The prediction of cross sections for nuclei far off stability is crucial in the field of nuclear astrophysics. We calculate direct neutron capture on the even-even isotopes Sn124-145 and Pb208-238
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
