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 ...
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 ...
Investigation of the reaction Ge-74(p,gamma)As-75 using the in-beam method to improve reaction network predictions for p nuclei Sauerwein, A.; Endres, J.; Netterdon, L.; Zilges, A.; Foteinou, V.; Provatas, G.; Konstantinopoulos, T.; Axiotis, M.; Ashley, S. F.; Harissopulos, S.; Rauscher, T. (2012-09-14)Background: Astrophysical models studying the origin of the neutron-deficient p nuclides require knowledge of proton capture cross sections at low energy. The production site of the p nuclei is still under discussion but ...
