New Stellar (n,γ)(n,\gamma) Cross Sections and The "Karlsruhe Astrophysical Database of Nucleosynthesis in Stars"


Since April 2005 a regularly updated stellar neutron cross section compilation is available online at This online-database is called the "Karlsruhe Astrophysical Database of Nucleosynthesis in Stars" project and is based on the previous Bao et al. compilation from the year 2000. The present version \textsc{KADoNiS} v0.2 (January 2007) includes recommended cross sections for 280 isotopes between 1^{1}H and 210^{210}Po and 75 semi-empirical estimates for isotopes without experimental information. Concerning stellar (n,γ)(n,\gamma) cross sections of the 32 stable, proton-rich isotopes produced by the pp process experimental information is only available for 20 isotopes, but 9 of them have rather large uncertainties of \geq9%. The first part of a systematic study of stellar (n,γ)(n,\gamma) cross sections of the pp-process isotopes 74^{74}Se, 84^{84}Sr, 102^{102}Pd, 120^{120}Te, 130^{130}Ba, 132^{132}Ba, 156^{156}Dy, and 174^{174}Hf is presented. In another application \textsc{KADoNiS} v0.2 was used for an modification of a reaction library of Basel university. With this modified library pp-process network calculations were carried out and compared to previous results.Comment: Proceedings "International Conference on Nuclear Data for Science and Technology 2007", Nice/ Franc
