On the origin of fluorine in the Milky Way
The main astrophysical factories of fluorine (19F) are thought to be Type II supernovae, Wolf-Rayet stars, and the asymptotic giant branch (AGB) of intermediate-mass stars. We present a model for the chemical evolution of fluorine in the Milky Way using a semi-analytic multizone chemical evolution model. For the first time, we demonstrate quantitatively the impact of fluorine nucleosynthesis in Wolf-Rayet and AGB stars. The inclusion of these latter two fluorine production sites provides a...[Show more]
