Important insights into the formation and evolution of the Galactic disc(s) are contained in the chemical compositions of stars. We analysed high-resolution and high signal-to-noise HARPS spectra of 79 solar twin stars in order to obtain precise determinations of their atmospheric parameters, ages (sigma similar to 0.4 Gyr) and chemical abundances (sigma < 0.01 dex) of 12 neutron-capture elements (Sr, Y, Zr, Ba, La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm, Eu, Gd and Dy). This valuable data set allows us to study the...[Show more]
