The astronomical information gathered so far is consistent with the following picture: each star generates its own li, be, b, by proton irradiation of the stellar atmosphere the isotopes 6li and 7li are later partly depleted by proton capture reactions, presumably at the bottom of the convective zone one of the main results of. Helium-3 + helium-3 is beryllium-6, which is unstable helium-3 + helium-4 is beryllium-7, which is stable enough to survive bbn, but decays to lithium-7 before the formation of galaxies helium-4 + helium-4 is beryllium-8, which is unstable can we keep going turns out we can't, because there is no nucleus with 8 (or. The measured rate suggests that almost all lithium-6 was actually produced well after the big bang – something that current theories of nucleosynthesis cannot explain the only three elements created in the early universe before stars and galaxies began to form were hydrogen, helium and lithium.

(13) that the light element abundances are consistent over nine orders of magnitude with bbn, but only if the cosmological baryon density, ωb, is constrained to be around 6% of the critical value (for h0 ≃ 50 km/sec per mpc) the li plateau argument was strengthened further with the observation of 6li in a.
Big bang nucleosynthesis gamow most lithium and beryllium is produced by cosmic ray collisions breaking up some of the carbon produced in stars mass difference, these weak reactions become slower than the expansion rate of the universe, and the neutron:proton ratio freezes out at about 1:6. 6 23 big-bang nucleosynthesis however, the evidence that something is depleting li at the low metallicity end suggests that its abundance may also be modified in halo stars with moderate metallicity so the observed abundance should be considered a lower bound rather than a measure of the primordial. Recently, the problem with lithium has gotten worse krauss's plot does not show lithium-7, but rather shows both lithium-7 and lithium-6 combined the theory of big bang nucleosynthesis predicts that lithium-6 abundance ought to be about 00015% that of lithium-7, so big-bang proponents believe any. A change in the fundamental constants of nature or plasma effects in the early universe could stabilize 8be against decay into two 4he nuclei coc et al examined the former effect on big bang nucleosynthesis as a function of b8, the mass difference between two 4he nuclei and a single 8be nucleus, and.

Summary abundances in terrestrial and meteoritic matter indicate that the synthesis of d2, li6, li7, be9, b10 and b11 and possibly c13 and n15 occurred during an intermediate stage in the early history of the solar system in this intermediate stage, the planetary material had become largely separated, but not completely,. Structures (eg ) moreover, it predicts the post-bbn abundances of the lightest elements produced in observationally accessible amounts these elements primarily include deuterium (2h), helium-4 (4he), helium-3 (3he), lithium-7 (7li), but also small traces of tritium (3h), lithium-6 (6li) and beryllium-7.

After the neutron-to-proton ratio is fixed at about 1/6 at freezeout, the neutrons begin to decay into protons of nucleosynthesis only subsequent nucleosynthesis in stars generates larger isotopes than helium-4 deuterium bottleneck the primordial abundance of lithium is very low, one part per billion in terms of mass. The most prominent success of the big bang model is the precise reproduction of mass abundance ratio for helium-4 however, the observed abundance of 7li isotope is still not well reproduced by the model calculations since the calculations were based on the experimental reaction data together with theoretical. According to big bang nucleosynthesis theory, primordial nucleosynthesis ran wild during the first half hour of the universe's existence reaction rates for deuterium+deuterium reactions doi: 103847/1538-4357/aa9025 the x− solution to the 6li and 7li big bang nucleosynthesis problems doi. 3)–this spite plateau implies that lithium is independent of galactic nucleosynthesis and is primordial, and the plateau level is taken as the primordial abundance indeed, given the low nuclear binding of 7li, it need only be exposed to relatively low stellar temperatures (t ≳ 25 × 106 k) to suffer substantial destruction.
