Thermal neutron capture cross section of the radioactive isotope Fe 60
Background: Fifty percent of the heavy element abundances are produced via slow neutron capture reactions in different stellar scenarios. The underlying nucleosynthesis models need the input of neutron capture cross sections. Purpose: One of the fundamental signatures for active nucleosynthesis in our galaxy is the observation of long-lived radioactive isotopes, such as Fe60 with a half-life of 2.60×106 yr. To reproduce this γ activity in the universe, the nucleosynthesis of Fe60 has to be...[Show more]
