Rauscher, T. (2011-05)This review focuses on nuclear reactions in astrophysics and, more specifically, on reactions with light ions (nucleons and alpha particles) proceeding via the strong interaction. It is intended to present the basic ...
Beer, H.; Sedyshev, P.V.; Rochow, W.; Rauscher, T.; Mohr, P. (2002-10-21)At the Karlsruhe and Tubingen 3.75 MV Van de Graaff accelerators the cross section of the reaction Si-30(n,gamma)Si-31(2.62h) was measured by the activation technique via the beta spectrum of the Si-31-decay. Natural silicon ...
Rauscher, T.; Heger, A.; Hoffman, R. D.; Woosley, S.E. (2002-09-01)We present the first calculations to follow the evolution of all stable nuclei and their radioactive progenitors in stellar models computed from the onset of central hydrogen burning through explosion as Type II supernovae. ...
