Nucleosynthesis during the early history of the solar system by William A Fowler( Book )

3 editions published between 1961 and 1962 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abundances in terrestrial and meteoritic matter indicate that the synthesis of D(2), Li(6), Li(7), Be(9), B(10) and B(11) and possibly C(13) and N(15) occurred during an intermediate stage in the early history of the solar system. In this intermediate stage, the planetary material had become largely separated, but not completely, from the hydrogen which was the main constituent of primitive solar material. Appropriate physical conditions were satisfied by solid planetesimals of dimensions from 1 to 50 metres consisting of silicates and oxides of the metals embedded in an icy matrix. The synthesis occurred through spallation and neutron reactions simultaneously induced in the outer layers of the planetesimals by the bombardment of high energy charged particles, mostly protons, accelerated in magnetic flares at the surface of the condensing Sun. The total particle energy was approximately 10 to the 45th power ergs while the average energy was close to 500 MeV per nucleon. Recent studies of the abundance of lithium in young T Tauri stars serve as the primary astronomical evidence for this point of view. The observed abundances of lithium and beryllium in the surface of the Sun are discussed in terms of the astronomical and nuclear considerations brought forward
Nucleosynthesis of heavy elements by neutron capture by Philip A Seeger( Book )

4 editions published between 1964 and 1965 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nucleosynthesis of elements heavier than the iron group by neutron capture on both slow and fast time scales is evaluated. The s-process calculations of Clayton, Fowler, Hull, and Zimmerman (Ann. Phys. 12:331, 1961) were revised to include more recent experimental results on abundances and neutron capture cross-sections. The solar-system s-process abundances indicate a history of neutron exposure distributions characterized by decreasing probability of high integrated flux; an exponential exposure distribution is extracted. Estimates are made of the s-process contribution to each isotopic abundance; a table gives the amounts of elements produced by each process in the solar-system material. The r-process calculations are carried out using a semi-empirical atomic-mass law to determine neutron-binding energies and beta-decay probabilities. The solar-system r-process material has probably been synthesized in two distinct types of environments. (Author)
