Nuclear Transmutation
« on: March 08, 2019, 02:51:28 PM »
Is (𝛼,𝛾) and (p-𝛾) nuclear transmutation theoretically possible? Some examples would be helpful.

(γ, p) reactions exist, keyword "photoproton"

so the reverse (p, γ) reaction can happen. Theoretically at least, because this doesn't tell how frequently.
