Systematic study of proton capture reactions in medium-mass nuclei relevant to the p process: The case of 103Rh and 113,115In

Systematic study of proton capture reactions in medium-mass nuclei relevant to the p process: The case of 103Rh and 113,115In | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
The cross sections of the $^{103}\mathrm{Rh}(p,\ensuremath{\gamma})^{104}\mathrm{Pd}$ and the $^{113,115}\mathrm{In}(p,\ensuremath{\gamma})^{114,116}\mathrm{Sn}$ reactions have been determined from $\ensuremath{\gamma}$ angular distribution measurements carried out at beam energies from 2 to 3.5 MeV. An array of four highly efficient HPGe detectors all shielded with BGO crystals for Compton background suppression was used. Astrophysical $S$ factors and reaction rates were deduced from the measured cross sections. Statistical model calculations were performed using the Hauser-Feshbach (HF) code TALYS and were compared with the new data. A good agreement between theory and experiment was found. In addition, the effect of different combinations of the nuclear input parameters entering the HF calculations on the ground-state reaction rates was investigated. It was found that these rates differ by a factor 3 at the most, being thus within the average discrepancies observed between calculated $p$-nuclei abundances and observations, if certain combinations of optical model potentials, nuclear level densities, and $\ensuremath{\gamma}$-ray strength functions are used.

Unexpectedly large charge radii of neutron-rich calcium isotopes

Unexpectedly large charge radii of neutron-rich calcium isotopes | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
Doubly magic atomic nuclei [mdash] having a magic number of both protons and neutrons [mdash] are very stable. Now, experiments revealing unexpectedly large charge radii for a series of Ca isotopes put the doubly magic nature of the 52Ca nucleus into question.
