1 R-Process Abundances: Calculations vs. Observations Karl-Ludwig Kratz - Institut für Kernchemie, Univ. Mainz, Germany - HGF VISTARS, Germany - Department of Physics, Univ. of Notre Dame, USA

2 B²FH, the bible of nuclear astrophysics Historically, nuclear astrophysics has always been concerned with interpretation of the origin of the chemical elements from astrophysical and cosmochemical observations, description in terms of specific nucleosynthesis processes.

3 Fit of N r, from B²FH assumption (n,γ) (γ,n) equillibrium waiting-point concept static calculation astrophysical conditions explosive He-burning in SN-I T 9 1 n n cm -3 τ r s neutron source: 21 Ne(α,n) mainly nuclear physics: Q β - Weizsäcker mass formula + empirical corrections (shell, deformation, pairing) T 1/2-1 allowed transition to excited state, logft = 3.85

4 Observational instrumentation r-process observables today Solar system isotopic abundances, N r, meteoric and overall solar abundances ground- and satellite-based telescopes like Imaging Spectrograph (STIS) at Hubble or HIRES at Keck, and γ-ray satellites like INTEGRAL, or X-ray observatories CHANDRA and XMM-Newton.

5 Abundance Clues and Constraints New observations of n-capture elements in lowmetallicity Galactic halo stars providing clues and constraints on: 1. Synthesis mechanisms for heavy elements early in the history of the Galaxy 2. Identities of earliest stellar generations, the progenitors of the halo stars 3. Suggestions on sites, particularly site or sites for the r-process 4. Galactic chemical evolution 5. Ages of the stars and the Galaxy From J. Cowan 2006

6 CS Abundances Cowan et al. (2005) Germanium Platinum (64 HST Orbits) 57 elements observed. More than any star except the Sun. Log (A) = Log 10 (N A /N H ) + 12 From J. Cowan 2006

10 History and progress in measuring r-process nuclei Definition: r-process isotopes lying in the process path at freeze-out when r-process falls out of (n,γ)-(γ,n) equilibrium even-neutron isotopes waiting points important nuclear-physics property T 1/2 odd-neutron isotopes connecting the waiting points important nuclear-physics property S n σ n.γ In 1986 a new r-process astrophysics era started: at the ISOL facilities OSIRIS, TRISTAN and SC-ISOLDE T 1/2 of N=50 waiting-point isotope 80 Zn 50 (top of A 80 N r, peak) T 1/2 of N=82 waiting-point isotope 130 Cd 82 (top of A 130 N r, peak) In 2006, altogether more than 50 r-process nuclei have been measured (at least) via their T 1/2, which lie in the process path at freeze-out. These r-process isotopes range from 68 Fe to 139 Sb. The large majority of these exotic nuclei was identified at CERN/ISOLDE via the decay mode of β delayed neutron emission.

11 What we knew already in Shell-model (QRPA; Nilsson/BCS) prediction T 1/2 = 230 ms T 1/2 = (195 ± 35) ms Q β = 8.0 MeV IKMz 155R(1986) K.-L. Kratz et al (Z.

19 Nuclear Masses Over the years, development of various types of mass models / formulas: Weizsäcker formula Local mass formulas (e.g. Garvey-Kelson; N π N ν ) Global approaches (e.g. Duflo-Zuker; KUTY) Macroscopic-microscopic models (e.g. FRDM, ETFSI) Microscopic models (e.g. RMF; HFB) Comparison to NUBASE (2001) // (2003) FRDM (1992) σ rms = // [MeV] ETF-Q (1996) σ rms = // [MeV] HFB-2 (2002) σ rms = [MeV] HFB-3 (2003) σ rms = [MeV] HFB-4 (2003) σ rms = [MeV] HFB-8 (2004) σ rms = [MeV] HFB-9 (2005) σ rms = [MeV] HFB-12 (2005) σ rms =?

25 CS Abundances Cowan et al. (2005) Good agreement with SS r-abundances beyond Z=50 Lighter elements appear underabundant relative to SS r-pattern. Y, Pd, Ag particularly low! Evidence for a second ( weak ) r-process? Log (A) = Log 10 (N A /N H ) + 12 From J. Cowan 2006

26 If There Are Two r-processes Where Is the Split? Two separate r-process sites based upon SS meteoritic data on Iodine and Hafnium (Wasserburg, Busso & Gallino); suggested split at Iodine Check by r-process calculations: Is Iodine made with Barium and Hafnium in the primary main r-process or is it made in the secondary weak r-process? Problem: no observations yet of any elements between Z = (only upper limits for Sn) From J. Cowan 2006

27 r-process elemental abundances Conditions for weak r-process main r-process Solar system Simmerer et al., 2004 CS Sneden et al., 2003 Calculations Pfeiffer & Kratz, 2005

28 I, Ba and Hf Production vs. N n The production of I seems to be coupled to the abundances of the heavier Ba-Pb abundances Solar value Sum of N n components K.-L. Kratz 2006

29 [I/Ba], [Ba/Hf], [I/Hf] vs. N n Again see that if Ba & Hf made at solar levels in main r-process make at least 90% I coupled results more element synthesis complications K.-L. Kratz 2006

30 Calculated r-process abundances as function of neutron density (K.-L. Kratz, B. Pfeiffer, 2005)

31 r-process Elemental Abundance Predictions Elemental abundances normalized at log N = 0 Note Hf seems to follow abundances of 3 rd r-process peak elements Kratz et al. (2006) main r-process

32 The age of the Universe holy grail of cosmology BPS CS in AQUARIUS [Fe/H]= -3.1 HD in CANES VENATICI [Fe/H]= -3.0 BPS CS in CETUS [Fe/H]= -2.9 We compare r-process model predictions with astronomical observations (Hubble, KECK) from UMP halo stars. We deduce - astrophysical conditions, and - criteria to determine actinide chronometers. age of UMP star -> Galaxy -> Universe 14 ± 2 Gyr Th/Eu too far in Z Th/U not conclusive without Pb, 3 rd peak U,Th/Hf U, Th/ 3 rd peak new chronometers Ga Ge Sr Zr Ru Cd Mo Pd Sn Y Rh Nb Ag CS abundances scaled solar r-process scaled theoretical solar r-process Pt Ba Os Nd Dy Gd Ce Sm Er Yb Ir Hf La Pr Eu Ho Tb Lu Tm Au Pb Th U

33 Conclusion Nuclear-physics data for r-process calculations still unsatisfactory! better global models for all nuclear shapes (spherical, prolate, oblate, triaxial, tetrahedral, ) and all nuclear types (even-even, even-odd, odd-even, odd-odd) more measurements masses! gross β-decay properties fission properties full spectroscopy of selected key waiting-point isotopes
