Swelling of nuclei embedded in neutron-gas and consequences for fusion

12 May 2015 Umar A. S. Oberacker V. E. Horowitz C. J. Reinhard P. -G. Maruhn J. A.

Fusion of very neutron rich nuclei may be important to determine the composition and heating of the crust of accreting neutron stars. We present an exploratory study of the effect of the neutron-gas environment on the structure of nuclei and the consequences for pycnonuclear fusion cross-sections in the neutron drip region...
