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...
