Description

Low-lying (less than 1 MeV) resonances in neutron-rich nuclei has important role in neutron capture phenomena like the r-process. We focus on a new type resonance in superfluid nuclei. That is called quasi-particle resonance [1,2]. Many nuclei with open-shell configuration have superfluidity generated by pairing correlation. The pairing correlation causes continuum coupling in weakly bound nuclei like neutron drip-line nuclei. The Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov theory in coordinate space can describe such weakly bound superfluid system [3,4]. It is a mean-field theory including pair condensate field. The theory predict the quasi-particle resonance in a single-particle scattering problem on a superfluid nucleus. An unbound particle couples a Cooper pair and a hole orbit, then forms the quasi-particle resonance. We have investigated the effects of pairing correlation on the width of low-lying p wave quasi-particle resonance. Through this investigation, we have discovered that the pairing correlation has the effect of reducing the resonance width [5]. [1] S. T. Belyaev, A. V. Smirnov, S. V. Tolokonnikov, and S. A.
