The s-process enrichment of the globular clusters M4 and M22

Shingles, Luke; Karakas, Amanda; Hirschi, Raphael; Fishlock, Cherie; Yong, David; Da Costa, Gary; Marino, Anna


We investigate the enrichment in elements produced by the slow neutron-capture process (s-process) in the globular clusters M4 (NGC 6121) and M22 (NGC 6656). Stars in M4 have homogeneous abundances of Fe and neutron-capture elements, but the entire cluster is enhanced in s-process elements (Sr, Y, Ba, Pb) relative to other clusters with a similar metallicity. In M22, two stellar groups exhibit different abundances of Fe and s-process elements. By subtracting the mean abundances of s-poor from...[Show more]
