Abstract

Small nuclei provide an ideal testing ground of few-body theories. 6He is particularly interesting in that it shows an extended particle distribution similar to a halo nucleus, is loosely bound, and is a Borromean system. We apply a fully antisymmetric model with correct projection into eigenstates of angular momentum. Binding energies, charge radii, matter radii, and B(E2;0+→2+) were obtained for the α+2n and cigar configurations. The same configurations were used to obtain the same observables for 6Li. Were were then able to calculate the logft value for the beta decay of 6He.
