Atomic Data and Neutron-Capture Element Abundances in Planetary Nebulae

  • N. C. Sterling (a1)

Abstract

Neutron(n)-capture elements are produced by s-process nucleosynthesis in low- and intermediate-mass AGB stars, and therefore can be enriched in planetary nebulae (PNe). In the last ten years, n-capture elements have been detected in more than 100 PNe in the Milky Way and nearby galaxies. In some objects, several different n-capture elements have been detected, providing valuable constraints to models of AGB nucleosynthesis and evolution. These detections have motivated theoretical and experimental investigations of the atomic data needed to derive accurate n-capture element abundances. In this review, I discuss the methods and results of these atomic data studies, and their application to abundance determinations in PNe.
