Supernova beta^- decay of nuclide 53Fe, 54Fe, 55Fe, and 56Fe in strongly screening plasma.
The electron screening strong effect on the electron energy and threshold energy of the beta decay reaction. in this paper, we study the $\beta^-$ decay rates of some iron isotopes. The electron screening beta decay rates increase by about two orders of magnitude. The strong screening beta decay rates due to Q-value correction are by more than one order of magnitude higher than those of without Q-value correction.
