Meyer, A., de Séréville, N., Laird, A., Hammache, F., Longland, R., Lawson, T., …Tatischeff, V. (in press). Evaluation of the $^{13}$N($\alpha$,p)$^{16}$O thermonuclear reaction rate and its impact on the isotopic composition of supernova grains. Physical Review C,

It has been suggested that hydrogen ingestion into the helium shell of massive stars could lead to high $^{13}$C and $^{15}$N excesses when the shock of a core-collapse supernova passes through its helium shell. This prediction questions the origin o... Read More about Evaluation of the $^{13}$N($\alpha$,p)$^{16}$O thermonuclear reaction rate and its impact on the isotopic composition of supernova grains.
