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 ...
Determining reaction cross sections via characteristic X-ray detection : alpha-induced reactions on Tm-169 for the astrophysical gamma-process Kiss, G. G.; Rauscher, T.; Szuecs, T.; Kertesz, Zs.; Fueloep, Zs.; Gyuerky, Gy.; Froehlich, C.; Farkas, J.; Elekes, Z.; Somorjai, E. (2011-01-17)The cross sections of the Tm-169(alpha, gamma)Lu-173 and Tm-169(alpha,n)Lu-172 reactions have been measured first time using a new method, by detecting the characteristic X-ray radiation following the electron capture-decay ...
Two effects relevant for the study of astrophysical reaction rates : gamma transitions in capture reactions and Coulomb suppression of the stellar enhancement Rauscher, T. (American Institute of Physics, 2009)Nucleosynthesis processes involve reactions on several thousand nuclei, both close to and far off stability. The preparation of reaction rates to be used in astrophysical investigations requires experimental and theoretical ...
