  • Abstract The main component of the s process is produced by low mass stars ( 1.5 ⩽ M / M ⊙ ⩽ 3 ) , when they climb for the second time the red giant branch and experience a series of He shell flashes called thermal pulses. During the relatively long period (10 5 yr) that elapses between two subsequent thermal pulses, a slow neutron flux is provided by the 13 C ( α , n ) 16 O reaction taking place within a thin 13 C pocket located in the He-rich and C-rich mantel of these stars. A second… CONTINUE READING
