Each heavy atom in our body was build and processed through ~100-1000 star generations since the initial Big Bang event!

We are made of star stuff

Signatures of Nucleosynthesis

solar abundance distribution

  • nucleosynthesis processes

  • nucleosynthesis history

  • of our universe

The stellar abundance distribution is a reflection of nuclear structure and nuclear stability!

Effects of nuclear electron capture during core collapse

Effects of Nuclear Electron Capture during Core Collapse

The electron capture at high densities results in lower Ye and generates neutrino wind which is necessary for driving the shock.

Electron captures on nuclei dominate

A colored dot means that the relevant nuclear data (mass, halflife, P(βn)) could be measured.

At present except in a few cases (blue) can output of models be matched to measured abundances.

The next generation exotic beam facilities will allow one to

  • constrain r-process theories using abundance data

  • extract full information about r-process (and its environment) fromobservational data

Fair chance nuclear masses

FAIR Chance: Nuclear masses

  • R-Process abundances depend on neutron separation energies

  • Different mass models predict different patterns

  • FRDM: ‚robust‘ patterns, as observed in old halo stars in Milky Way

  • ETFSI: individual patterns strongly depending on neutron-to-seed ratios


Fair chance role of halflives

Competition velocity of ejected matter vs. halflives

IF halflives were known, strong constraint of matter ejection from neutron star surface!

FAIR Chance: Role of Halflives


Fair chance neutron stars

FAIR Chance: Neutron Stars

  • Neutron Stars are laboratories for matter at extreme densities

  • Neutron rich nuclei

  • Equation of State for nuclear matter

  • Exotic phases?
