The presence of many radionuclides in the early solar system is inferred from excesses in their decay products found in meteorites. These isotopes, including Cl, are referred to as short-lived radionuclides (SLRs) compared to the age of the solar system, and studying the observed excesses can give important insights in to processes taking place during the formation of the solar system and their timescales. To fully utilize SLRs for this purpose, however, their production sources and mechanisms must be well understood. Learn more
