Shell structure of weakly-bound and resonant neutrons

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding

Abstract

The systematic change of shell structure in both weakly bound and resonant neutron one-particle levels in nuclei towards the neutron drip line is exhibited, solving the coupled equations derived from the Schrodinger equation in coordinate space with the correct asymptotic behaviour of wave functions for r -> infinity. The change comes from the behaviour unique in the one-particle motion with low orbital angular momenta compared with that with high orbital angular momenta. The observed deformation of very neutron-rich nuclei with N greater than or similar to 20 in the island of inversion is a natural result of this changed shell structure, while a possible deformation of neutron-drip-line nuclei with N approximate to 51, which are not yet observed, is suggested.
