Radioactive nuclei in the early Solar System: Analysis of the 15 isotopes produced by core-collapse supernovae (2021)
Journal Article
Lawson, T. V., Pignatari, M., Stancliffe, R. J., den Hartogh, J., Jones, S., Fryer, C. L., …Lugaro, M. (in press). Radioactive nuclei in the early Solar System: Analysis of the 15 isotopes produced by core-collapse supernovae. Monthly notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, https://doi.org/10.1093/mnras/stab3684

Short-lived radioactive isotopes (SLRs) with half-lives between 0.1 to 100 Myr can be used to probe the origin of the Solar System. In this work, we examine the core-collapse supernovae production of the 15 SLRs produced: 26Al, 36Cl, 41Ca, 53Mn, 60Fe...

26Aluminum from Massive Binary Stars. II. Rotating Single Stars up to Core Collapse and Their Impact on the Early Solar System (2021)
Journal Article
Brinkman, H. E., Hartogh, J. W., Doherty, C. L., Pignatari, M., & Lugaro, M. (2021). 26Aluminum from Massive Binary Stars. II. Rotating Single Stars up to Core Collapse and Their Impact on the Early Solar System. The Astrophysical journal, 923(1), https://doi.org/10.3847/1538-4357/ac25ea

Radioactive nuclei were present in the early solar system (ESS), as inferred from analysis of meteorites. Many are produced in massive stars, either during their lives or their final explosions. In the first paper of this series (Brinkman et al. 2019... Read More about 26Aluminum from Massive Binary Stars. II.

The 59Fe (n,γ) 60Fe Cross Section from the Surrogate Ratio Method and Its Effect on the 60Fe Nucleosynthesis (2021)
Journal Article
Yan, S. Q., Li, X. Y., Nishio, K., Lugaro, M., Li, Z. H., Makii, H., …Liu, W. P. (2021). The 59Fe (n,γ) 60Fe Cross Section from the Surrogate Ratio Method and Its Effect on the 60Fe Nucleosynthesis. The Astrophysical journal, 919(2), https://doi.org/10.3847/1538-4357/ac12ce

The long-lived 60Fe (with a half-life of 2.62 Myr) is a crucial diagnostic of active nucleosynthesis in the Milky Way galaxy and in supernovae near the solar system. The neutron-capture reaction 59Fe(n,γ)60Fe on 59Fe (half-life = 44.5 days) is the ke...

The Gaia-ESO Survey: A new approach to chemically characterising young open clusters (2021)
Journal Article
Baratella, M., D'Orazi, V., Sheminova, V., Spina, L., Carraro, G., Gratton, R., …Zaggia, S. (2021). The Gaia-ESO Survey: A new approach to chemically characterising young open clusters. Astronomy and Astrophysics, 653, https://doi.org/10.1051/0004-6361/202141069

Context. Young open clusters (ages of less than 200 Myr) have been observed to exhibit several peculiarities in their chemical compositions. These anomalies include a slightly sub-solar iron content, super-solar abundances of some atomic species (e.g...
