Continuum dipole response near the threshold and the direct neutron capture cross section at astrophysical energies
We apply the continuum quasiparticle random phase approximation to calculate the direct neutron capture cross section relevant to the r-process nucleo-synthesis. The electric dipole strength function
Nuclear dipole response in the finite-temperature relativistic time-blocking approximation
The radiative neutron capture reaction rates of the r-process nucleosynthesis are immensely affected by the microscopic structure of the low-energy spectra of compound nuclei. The relativistic
Impact of low-energy multipole excitations and pygmy resonances on radiative nucleon captures
Nuclear structure theory is considered in the framework of the development of a microscopic model for nucleon-capture astrophysical implementations. In particular, microscopically obtained strength
Quasiparticle-vibration coupling effects on nuclear transitions of astrophysical interest
The relativistic quasiparticle time-blocking approximation (RQTBA) is applied to the description of nuclear excitation modes of astrophysical interest. This method is based on the meson-nucleon
Nuclear response theory for spin-isospin excitations in a relativistic quasiparticle-phonon coupling framework
Abstract.A new theoretical approach to spin-isospin excitations in open-shell nuclei is presented. The developed method is based on the relativistic meson-exchange nuclear Lagrangian of Quantum
Energy–density functional plus quasiparticle–phonon model theory as a powerful tool for nuclear structure and astrophysics
During the last decade, a theoretical method based on the energy–density functional theory and quasiparticle–phonon model, including up to three-phonon configurations was developed. The main
Low-energy quadrupole states in neutron-rich tin nuclei
We present a study on the isoscalar quadrupole strength in tin nuclei, focusing mainly on the low-energy region. The calculations are performed using the Skyrme-type energy density functionals within
Electric and magnetic dipole modes in high-resolution inelastic proton scattering at 0°
Inelastic proton scattering under extreme forward angles including $0^\circ$ and at energies of a few hundred MeV has been established as a new spectroscopic tool for the study of complete dipole
Self-consistent calculations of the strength function and radiative neutron capture cross section for stable and unstable tin isotopes
The E1 strength function for 15 stable and unstable Sn even-even isotopes from A=100 to A=176 are calculated using a self-consistent microscopic theory which, in addition to the standard


Relativistic quasiparticle time blocking approximation. II. Pygmy dipole resonance in neutron-rich nuclei
Theoretical studies of low-lying dipole strength in even-even spherical nuclei within the relativistic quasiparticle time blocking approximation (RQTBA) are presented. The RQTBA developed recently as
Quasiparticle random phase approximation based on the relativistic Hartree-Bogoliubov model
The relativistic quasiparticle random phase approximation (RQRPA) is formulated in the canonical single-nucleon basis of the relativistic Hartree-Bogoliubov (RHB) model. For the interaction in the
Relativistic quasiparticle time blocking approximation: Dipole response of open-shell nuclei
The self-consistent relativistic quasiparticle random-phase approximation (RQRPA) is extended by the quasiparticle-phonon coupling (QPC) model using the quasiparticle time blocking approximation
Dipole radiative strength functions from resonance neutron capture
Photon strength functions have been derived from discrete neutron resonance data for electric and magnetic dipole radiation using the methods of slow neutron time-of-flight spectroscopy. The data
Evidence for pygmy and giant dipole resonances in 130Sn and 132Sn.
The dipole strength distribution above the one-neutron separation energy was measured in the unstable 130Sn and the double-magic 132Sn isotopes, and a resonancelike structure ("pygmy resonance") is observed at a lower excitation energy around 10 MeV exhausting a few percent of the isovector E1 energy-weighted sum rule.
