  • Direct photon and neutral pion production with respect to the reaction plane at high-p{sub T} were measured with the PHENIX experiment in Au+Au collisions at {radical}s{sub NN}=200 GeV at mid-rapidity. The azimuthal asymmetry parameter v{sub 2} for direct photons was found to be consistent with zero for all centrality classes. We evaluate the dependence of {pi}{sub 0} suppression at high-p{sub T} on the emission angle {Delta}{phi} with respect to the event reaction plane for seven centrality bins. For the peripheral bins we observe no suppression for neutral pions aligned with the reaction plane while {pi}{sup 0}'s produced perpendicular to themore » reaction plane are suppressed by factor 2. We found that a simple geometric picture can explain the observed suppression pattern.« less
  • x-ray bursts are identified as thermonuclear explosions in the outer atmosphere of accreting neutron stars. The thermonuclear runaway is fueled by the {alpha}p process that describes a sequence of ({alpha},p) reactions triggered by the {sup 18}Ne({alpha},p){sup 21}Na breakout reaction from the hot CNO cycles. We studied the level structure of the compound nucleus {sup 22}Mg by measuring the {sup 24}Mg(p,t){sup 22}Mg reaction at the Grand Raiden spectrometer at Research Center for Nuclear Physics, Osaka. A large number of {alpha}-unbound states was identified and precise excitation energies were determined. Based on shell model and {alpha}-cluster model calculations we predict the levelmore » parameters for determining the stellar reaction rate of {sup 18}Ne({alpha},p){sup 21}Na for a wide temperature range. x-ray burst simulations have been performed to study the impact of the reaction on the x-ray burst luminosity.« less
  • Since the identification of ongoing {sup 26}Al production in the universe, the reaction sequence {sup 24}Mg(p,{gamma}){sup 25}Al({beta}{sup +{nu}}){sup 25}Mg(p,{gamma}){sup 26}Al has been studied intensively. At temperatures where the radiative capture on {sup 25}Al (t{sub 1/2}=7.2 s) becomes faster than the {beta}{sup +} decay, the production of {sup 26}Al can be reduced due to the depletion of {sup 25}Al. To determine the resonances relevant for the {sup 25}Al(p,{gamma}){sup 26}Si bypass reaction, we measured the {sup 28}Si(p,t){sup 26}Si reaction with high-energy precision using the Grand Raiden spectrometer at the Research Center for Nuclear Physics, Osaka. Several new energy levels were found abovemore » the p threshold and for known states excitation energies were determined with smaller uncertainties. The calculated stellar rates of the bypass reaction agree well with previous results, suggesting that these rates are well established.« less
  • The rise time of stellar x-ray bursts is a signature of thermonuclear runaway processes in the atmosphere of neutron stars and is highly sensitive to a series of ({alpha},p) reactions via high-lying resonances in sd-shell nuclei. Lacking data for the relevant resonance levels, the stellar reaction rates have been calculated using statistical, Hauser-Feshbach models, assuming a high-level density. This assumption may not be correct in view of the selectivity of the ({alpha},p) reaction to natural parity states. We measured the {sup 28}Si(p,t){sup 26}Si reaction with a high-resolution spectrometer to identify resonance levels in {sup 26}Si above the {alpha}-emission threshold atmore » 9.164 MeV excitation energy. These resonance levels are used to calculate the stellar reaction rate of the {sup 22}Mg({alpha},p){sup 25}Al reaction and to test the validity of the statistical assumption.« less
