The slow neutron capture process or s-process is a series of reactions in nuclear astrophysics which occur in stars, particularly agb starsthe s-process is responsible for the creation (nucleosynthesis) of approximately half the atomic nuclei heavier than iron. [abridged] we study the s-process in agb stars using three different stellar evolutionary models computed for a 3msun and solar metallicity star first we investigate the formation and the efficiency of the main neutron source.
