ABSTRACT
The Krypton isotopes lie in one of the most sensitive, complicated and, therefore, interesting region of the s-process nucleosynthesis. This mass region, in fact, receives substantial contribution from both the weak and the main component of the s-process. In addition to that, the branching in the s-process path at [sup 85]Kr can deliver important information on the neutron flux. The total cross section of [sup 84]Kr and the capture cross section of [sup 86]Kr have been measured and the MAC cross sections calculated with the aim to reduce the uncertainties in the s-process models due to nuclear parameters. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    We have implemented a new laser-based detection scheme for the rare krypton isotopes. The scheme utilizes two-step excitation of metastable krypton atoms in a nearly perfect three-level system followed by field ionization. The detection scheme was realized experimentally with a mass-separated...

    Accurate spectroscopic data on isotope shifts of high-lying states, in particular Rydberg-states are rare, because of their small values. We report results on transitions involving an intermediate 5p[sup 2][5/2][sub 3] level and high-lying Rydberg-levels. The excitation scheme utilizes two-step...

It is found that collisional ionization can be used for sensitive detection of recyclable and partially recyclable transitions. It can also be used to...

    The theory of nonideal, multicomponent, isotopic mixtures is used to calculate the vapor pressures of pure [SUP80]Kr(l) and [SUP84]Kr(l) from data on isotopic mixtures. The correction to ideal solution behavior, A, is found to be much smaller than the statistical deviations in the experimental...

    We have demonstrated an excitation method to produce Kr[sub 2][sup *] by using soft x rays emitted from a laser-produced plasma. We have found that Kr[sup 2+] ions were directly produced by photoionization of Kr atoms by soft x rays. The behavior of Kr[sub 2][sup *] emission was similar to that...

    The dependence of the ultracold neutron capture cross section in targets with a thickness smaller than the neutron wavelength is calculated in the time-dependent quantum theory. It is shown that, for low velocities of neutrons, their capture cross section s[sub c]~v, i.e., tends to zero as the...
