Europium, Samarium, And Neodymium Isotopic Fractions In Metal-Poor Stars
We have derived isotopic fractions of europium, samarium, and neodymium in two metal-poor giants with differing neutron-capture nucleosynthetic histories. These isotopic fractions were measured from new high-resolution (R ...
New Hubble Space Telescope Observations of Heavy Elements in Four Metal-Poor Stars
Elements heavier than the iron group are found in nearly all halo stars. A substantial number of these elements, key to understanding neutron-capture nucleosynthesis mechanisms, can only be detected in the near-ultraviolet. ...
New Abundance Determinations of Cadmium, Lutetium, and Osmium in the R-Process Enriched Star BD+17 3248
We report the detection of Cd I (Z = 48), Lu II (Z = 71), and Os II (Z = 76) in the metal-poor star BD + 17 3248. These abundances are derived from an ultraviolet spectrum obtained with the Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph ...
