Proton-neutron pairing and quartet correlations in nuclei

=Abstract=

The common treatment of proton-neutron pairing in N ≅ Z nuclei relies on Cooper pairs and mean-field BCS-type models. However, for any spin-singlet (S=0) and spin-triplet (S=1) pairing interactions the ground state of N=Z nuclei is accurately described not by Cooper pairs but in terms of quartets [1-3]. Moreover, quartets remain relevant degrees of freedom for more general two-body interactions than pairing, indicating that quartetting is in fact a general feature in N=Z nuclei [4]. Using a formalism of quartets, I will discuss the competition between T=0 and T=1 pairing in N=Z nuclei [1-3], the effect of proton-neutron pairing on Wigner energy [5] and the role of isoscalar spin-aligned pairs in 92Pd [6].
