Abstrakt

The stellar neutron capture cross sections of Hf174 and the radioactive isotope Hf182 (t1/2=8.9×106 yr) have been measured for the first time at kT=25 keV by means of the activation technique. These isotopes originate from different stellar scenarios, Hf174 from the p-process by a series of photodisintegration reactions of heavier seed nuclei, and Hf182 from the s-process in asymptotic giant branch stars as well as from the r-process

in supernovae or neutron star mergers. Both activation measurements

were carried out at the Karlsruhe Van de Graaff accelerator using the Li7(p,n)Be7 reaction for simulating a Maxwellian neutron spectrum corresponding to a thermal energy of kT=25 keV. The Maxwellian averaged cross sections (MACS) extrapolated to the common s-process temperatures at kT=30 keV yield ⟨σ⟩30=983±46 and 141±8 mb for Hf174 and Hf182, respectively.
