Effective interactions between nuclear clusters

  title={Effective interactions between nuclear clusters},
  author={Yoshiko Kanada-En’yo and Dean Lee},
  journal={Physical Review C},
The effective interactions between two nuclear clusters, $d+d, t+t$, and $\ensuremath{\alpha}+\ensuremath{\alpha}$, are investigated within a cluster model using local nucleon-nucleon ($NN$) forces. It is shown that the interaction in the spin-aligned $d+d$ system is repulsive for all intercluster distances, whereas the $\ensuremath{\alpha}+\ensuremath{\alpha}$ and spin-aligned $t+t$ systems are attractive at intermediate distances. The Pauli blocking between identical-nucleon pairs is… Expand

Chiral Effective Field Theory after Thirty Years: Nuclear Lattice Simulations
The introduction of chiral effective field theory by Steven Weinberg three decades ago has had a profound and lasting impact on nuclear physics. This brief review explores the impact of Weinberg’sExpand
Wigner SU(4) symmetry, clustering, and the spectrum of $$^{12}$$C
We present lattice calculations of the low-lying spectrum of $$^{12}$$ 12 C using a simple nucleon–nucleon interaction that is independent of spin and isospin and therefore invariant underExpand

α -particle condensation: A nuclear quantum phase transition
When the density of a nuclear system is decreased, homogeneous states undergo the so-called Mott transition towards clusterised states, e.g. alpha clustering, both in nuclei and in nuclear matter.Expand
Alpha-clustering effects in heavy nuclei
The study of cluster structures in light nuclei is extending to the heavy nuclei in these years. As for the stable N = Z nuclei, from the lighter 8Be, 12C nuclei to the heavier 20Ne and even the 40CaExpand

Can Tetraneutron be a Narrow Resonance?
It is demonstrated that while the energy of the four-neutron system may be compatible with the experimental value, its width must be larger than the reported upper limit, supporting the interpretation of the experimental observation as a reaction process too short to form a nucleus. Expand
Effective Forces Between Quantum Bound States.
A simple model involving two-component fermions in one spatial dimension is studied and finds that the strength and range of the local part of the particle-particle interactions play a dominant role in shaping the interactions between the dimers and can even determine the overall sign of the effective potential.
