JINA Research -- A complete description of the origin of 35 isotopes (the p-nuclei) on the neutron-deficient side of the chart of nuclides has remained elusive to the nuclear astrophysics community. The favored scenario of photodisintegration reactions inside of type II supernovae) has failed to reproduce the observed abundance pattern. In an effort to improve the nuclear physics inputs in the models, JINA investigators designed the Summing Na(Tl) SUN detector at the NSCL to measure proton and alpha capture reactions at astrophysical energies.
