Halo Effective Field Theory of 6He

Arbin Thapaliya, Chen Ji, Daniel Phillips
^6He has a cluster structure with a tight ^4He (alpha) core surrounded by two loosely bound neutrons (n) making it a halo nucleus. The leading-order (LO) Halo Effective Field Theory (EFT) [1, 2] calculations using momentum-space Faddeev equations pertinent to a bound ^6He were carried out in [3]. In this work, we investigate ^6He up to next-to-leading order (NLO) within Halo EFT.
