    • Approaching the precursor nuclei of the third r-process peak with RIBs 

      Domingo-Pardo, C; Agramunt Ros, Jorge; Algora, A.; Calviño Tavares, Francisco; Cortés Rossell, Guillem Pere (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2013)
      Conference lecture
      Open Access
      The rapid neutron nucleosynthesis process involves an enormous amount of very exotic neutron-rich nuclei, which represent a theoretical and experimental challenge. Two of the main decay properties that affect the final ...
    • Beta-decay half-lives and beta-delayed neutron emission probabilities for several isotopes of Au, Hg, Tl, Pb, and Bi, beyond N = 126 

      Caballero-Folch, R.; Domingo-Pardo, C; Agramunt Ros, Jorge; Calviño Tavares, Francisco; Cortés Rossell, Guillem Pere (2017-06-23)
      Article
      Open Access
      Background: There have been measurements on roughly 230 nuclei that are beta-delayed neutron emitters. They range from 8He up to 150La. Apart from 210Tl, with a branching ratio of only 0.007%, no other neutron emitter has ...
    • Conceptual design of the BRIKEN detector: A hybrid neutron-gamma detection system for nuclear physics at the RIB facility of RIKEN 

      Tarifeño Saldivia, Ariel Esteban; Taín, J.L.; Domingo-Pardo, C; Calviño Tavares, Francisco; Cortés Rossell, Guillem Pere (2016-06-16)
      External research report
      Open Access
      BRIKEN is a complex detection system to be installed at the RIB-facility of the RIKEN Nishina Center. It is aimed at the detection of heavy-ion implants, ß-particles, ¿-rays and ß-delayed neu- trons. The whole detection ...

      An overview of the past, present and future research activities at the CERN neutron time of flight facility n TOF is given, with special focus on the astrophysical aspects. During the first campaign (Phase I), neutron ...
    • Measurement of the radiative capture cross section of the s-process branching points 204Tl and 171Tm at the n_TOF facility (CERN) 

      Casanovas Hoste, Adrià; Domingo-Pardo, C; Guerrero, C.; Calviño Tavares, Francisco; Tarifeño Saldivia, Ariel Esteban; Cortés Rossell, Guillem Pere (EPJ Web of Conferences, 2018)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      The neutron capture cross section of some unstable nuclei is especially relevant for s-process nucleosynthesis studies. This magnitude is crucial to determine the local abundance pattern, which can yield valuable information ...
    • Measurement of very low (alpha,n) cross sections of astrophysical interest 

      Taín, J.L.; Jordan Herrero, Donato; Agramunt Ros, Jorge; Algora, A.; Bandac, I; Bettini, S; Caballero Folch, Roger; Calviño Tavares, Francisco; Cano-Ott, D; Cortés Rossell, Guillem Pere; Domingo-Pardo, C; Fraile, L. M.; Garcia, A.R.; Gomez-Cadenas, J.J.; José Pont, Jordi; Longland, Richard; Mendoza, E (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2016)
      Article
      Open Access
      The reactions 13C( ; n)16O and 22Ne( ; n)25Mg are the primary sources of neutrons for the astrophysical s-process. The feasibility of cross section measurements within the respective Gamow windows is discussed in quantitative ...
    • Neutron capture on ^{205}Tl: depicting the abundance pattern of lead isotopes in s-process nucleosynthesis 

      Casanovas Hoste, Adrià; Tarifeño Saldivia, Ariel Esteban; Domingo-Pardo, C; Calviño Tavares, Francisco (2018-01-10)
      External research report
      Open Access
      We propose to use the TOF technique to measure the neutron capture cross section of 205Tl(n,gamma) over the full energy range of stellar interest. An accurate measurement of this cross section is needed for a complete and ...
    • Time-of-flight and activation experiments on 147 Pm and 171 Tm for astrophysics 

      Guerrro Sánchez, Carlos; Lerendegui-Marco, J.; Domingo-Pardo, C; Calviño Tavares, Francisco; Casanovas Hoste, Adrià; Cortés Rossell, Guillem Pere; Tarifeño Saldivia, Ariel Esteban (EDP Sciences, 2016)
      Conference lecture
      Open Access
      The neutron capture cross section of several key unstable isotopes acting as branching points in the s-process are crucial for stellar nucleosynthesis studies, but they are very challenging to measure due to the difficult ...
