S-Process

(Slow-neutron-capture-process)
(synthesization of elements through neutron capture and beta decay)

The S-Process is a Nucleosynthesis process in stars consisting of Neutron Capture followed by Beta Decay, resulting in a nucleus with an atomic weight one more and an atomic number one more. Many of the elements heavier than Iron (Fe) result from this process.
