  • Nuclear Data for AstrophysicsNuclear data required for studies of:Early universe Big Bang,Stellar physics:novae, supernovae, Red giants,Interstellar medium.

  • Nuclear Data for AstrophysicsCodes for modeling these systems require massive amounts of nuclear dataReaction rates.Energy released in nuclear reactions.Structural properties of relevant nuclei.

  • Nuclear Data for AstrophysicsReaction rate: vCross section times ion velocity averaged over Maxwell-Bolzmann distribution of relative ion velocity.Basic data are cross sections and resonance parameters.

  • Nuclear Data for AstrophysicsFor many unstable nuclear no cross section data exist!Calculations rely on data from theoretical models.Experimental reaction data are used for refinement of theoretical models.

  • Nuclear Data for AstrophysicsReaction ratesCoughlin and Fowler - 1967 [1]NACRE [2]T. Raucher and F.-K. Thielemann [3]Goriely et al.Many others

  • Nuclear Data for AstrophysicsEnergy released in nuclear reactionsReaction Q-valuesAudi, Wapstra, Thibault [4]

  • Nuclear Data for AstrophysicsStructural properties of nucleiDecay lifetime,Branching ratios,Separation energies: 1- and 2-particle,Level densities,Resonance parameters.

  • Nuclear Data for Astrophysics

  • Nuclear Data for AstrophysicsG.R. Coughlin and W.A. Fowler, At. Data & Nucl. Data Tables, 40 (1988) 283C. Angulo et al., Nucl. Phys. A 656 (1999) 3.T. Raucher and F.-K. Thielemann, At.

  • Nuclear Data for AstrophysicsStellar nucleosynthesis:Hydrogen burning.Helium burning.Silicon burning.Each involve the need for data on many nuclear reactions.

  • Alpha-Induced ReactionsReactions involving alpha particles are important in the helium burning stage of stars, novae, and supernovae.They involve light to medium weight nuclei, up to Z=32, and center-of-mass energies up to about 20 MeV.

  • Alpha-Induced ReactionsBuildup of 56Ni in supernovae depends critically on the (,) and (,p) reactions on -nuclei, the heaviest stable nuclide of them being 40Ca. For more massive radioactive - nuclei, 44Ti, 48Cr, 52Fe, and 56Ni, we must rely heavily on calculations, since there are few measurements.

  • Alpha-Induced ReactionsA key element in our understanding of -induced reactions is the -nucleus potential.Most wide used potentials are McFadden-Satchler [1] and Arthur-Young [2].Both are global potentials, i.e., expected to perform for a large number of nuclei, but perhaps not suitable for accurate calculations.

  • Alpha-Induced ReactionsNNDC and CNPD, Sarov, along with ORNL, have been involved in a project to compile and evaluate alpha-induced nuclear reaction data.Objective: to derive alpha-nucleus potentials for use in model calculations.

  • Alpha-Induced ReactionsCompilation of data completed.Evaluation of data.Calculations using the code Empire [3] for both potentials and the code NON-SMOKER [4].

  • Alpha-Induced Reactions1st phase of project is nearing completion [5].All data will be made available to the community.
