To better characterize the abundance patterns produced by the r-process, we have derived new abundances or upper limits for the heavy elements zinc (Zn, Z = 30), yttrium (Y, Z = 39), lanthanum (La, Z = 57), europium (Eu, Z = 63), and lead (Pb, Z =82). Our sample of 161 metal-poor stars includes newmeasurements from 88 high-resolution and high signal-to-noise spectra obtained with the Tull Spectrograph on the 2.7 m Smith Telescope at the McDonald Observatory, and other abundances are adopted...[Show more]
