Abstract

The dependence of effective pair gap on weakly bound neutron orbits is studied in deformed nuclei in comparison with that in spherical nuclei, solving the Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov equation in a simplified model in coordinate space with the correct asymptotic boundary conditions. In spherical nuclei the effective pair gap of s1/2 neutrons decreases to zero in the limit that the corresponding Hartree-Fock one-particle energy approaches zero. In the same limit, the effective pair gap of =1/2+ neutrons in deformed nuclei becomes very small when the wave functions of =1/2+ orbits contain an appreciable amount of s1/2 components, even if a considerable amount of larger-components remains in the wave functions. Then, the one-particle excitation spectra of deformed even-even neutron-drip-line nuclei, in which an =1/2+ level is weakly bound, can start at much lower energy than twice the average pair gap in the presence of many-body pair correlation.
