The activation method for cross section measurements in nuclear astrophysics

Gyürky, Gy.; Fulop, Zs.; Kappeler, F.; Kiss, G. G.; Wallner, Anton


The primary aim of experimental nuclear astrophysics is to determine the rates of nuclear reactions taking place in stars in various astrophysical conditions. These reaction rates are an important ingredient for understanding the elemental abundance distribution in our solar system and the galaxy. The reaction rates are determined from the cross sections which need to be measured at energies as close to the astrophysically relevant ones as possible. In many cases the final nucleus of an...[Show more]
