Nuclear Physics of the s Process

  • I. Dillmann (a1), C. Domingo Pardo (a1), F. Käppeler (a1), A. Mengoni (a2) and K. Sonnabend (a3)...

Abstract

Starting from a sketch of the s-process concept formulated 50 years ago, the nuclear physics data for s-process calculations are briefly reviewed with emphasis on the status of neutron capture cross sections and beta decay rates. Accurate and comprehensive experimental data are mandatory as direct input for s-process calculations as well as for improving the complementary information from nuclear theory. The current challenges of the field are discussed in the light of new or optimized methods and state-of-the-art facilities, indicating the potential for accurate measurements and the possibility to study cross sections of radioactive isotopes. These opportunities will be considerably enriched by the enormous improvements provided by new facilities.
