    Pt/TiO2 photocatalysts were prepared by incipient wetness impregnation followed by oxidative and/or reductive thermal treatments. By varying the TiO2 form (commercial P25 and P90, and homemade shape-controlled), the Pt ...
  • 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 ...

    Neutron capture cross section measurements on 155Gd and 157Gd were performed using the time-of-flight technique at the n_TOF facility at CERN on isotopically enriched samples. The measurements were carried out in the n_TOF ...
  • First Measurement of 72Ge(n gamma) at n-TOF 

    Calviño Tavares, Francisco; Cortés Rossell, Guillem Pere; Tarifeño Saldivia, Ariel Esteban; (EDP Sciences, 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The slow neutron capture process (s-process) is responsible for producing about half of the elemental abundances heavier than iron in the universe. Neutron capture cross sections on stable isotopes are a key nuclear physics ...
