Nucleosynthesis of r-Process Elements by Jittering Jets in Core-Collapse Supernovae

Oded Papish, Noam Soker

Schematic drawing of the inflated spherical bubble. The spherical bubble is powered by jittering jets, i.e., they change their direction at a high rate, launched from an accretion disk around the newly formed neutron star. This spherical bubble explodes the star according to our model. R-process elements are fused inside the bubble. The typical radius during the jets’ active phase is 3000-10000 km

We calculate the nucleosynthesis inside the hot bubble formed in the jittering-jets model for core collapse supernovae (CCSNe) explosions…. Read more: http://arxiv.org
