i process

Nucleosynthesis, stellar evolution and hydrodynamics of the intermediate neutron capture process.

Intermediate neutron-capture process (i process) on rapidly accreting white dwarfs

Stellar evolution models and nucleosynthesis analysis that show that rapidly accreting white dwarfs are very unlikely to reach Chandrasekhar mass, but instead produce i- process nucleosynthesis ejecta that may rival the production from s process in AGB stars for some elements.

The i-process and CEMP-r/s stars

We showed that the observed abundances of heavy elements in CEMP-r/s stars could be reproduced surprisingly well in simple one-zone simulations of i-process nucleosynthesis.

i process in super-AGB stars

H ingestion into a pulse-driven He convective zone has been found during third dredge-up episodes in super-AGB stars. This can lead to i process.
