Determination of the (n,gamma) reaction rate of unstable W-185 in the astrophysical s-process via its inverse reaction Sonnabend, K.; Mengoni, A.; Mohr, P.; Rauscher, T.; Vogt, K.; Zilges, A. (2003-05-05)The (gamma,n) reaction rate of W-186 was measured in order to deduce the (n,gamma) reaction rate of 185 W, an important branching point in the astrophysical s-process. The theoretical predictions have been confirmed and ...
Determination of (n,gamma) reaction rates at s-process branching points via their inverse reactions Sonnabend, K.; Mengoni, A.; Mohr, P.; Rauscher, T.; Vogt, K.; Zilges, A. (2003-05-19)We present our method to determine the (n,gamma) reaction rates of s-process branching point nuclei using data of the inverse (gamma,n) reaction. As an example, we selected Zr-95. The analysis of the data of the reaction ...
Skakun, Ye.; Rauscher, T. (American Institute of Physics, 2008)Astrophysical S-factors for (p,n) reactions on stable Pd isotopes derived from experimental cross sections were compared to statistical model predictions with the NON-SMOKER code. Satisfactory agreement was found. Reaction ...
