Electric quadrupole, magnetic moment, electroexcitation form factor, Skyrme interaction


The magnetic dipole and electric quadrupole moments for some Boron isotopes were calculated using the shell model taking into account the effect of the two-body effective interactions and the single-particle potentials. These isotopes are; (8 5)B(2 +), (1 50)B(3 +), (1 51)B((3/2)−), ( 1 52)B(1 +) and (1 53)B((3/2)−). Also, the elastic and inelastic longitudinal and transverse electron scattering form factors are calculated for 10B and 11B, for which there are available experimental data. The one-body transition density matrix elements (OBDM) were calculated using the two-body effective interactions; PWT, PEWT, PKUO and CKIHE, which are carried out in the p-shell model space. Skyrme interaction was implemented to generate the single-particle matrix elements with Hartree-Fock approximation and compared with those of harmonic-oscillator and Wood-Saxon potentials. All the evaluated results were compared with available experimental data. The present work has led us to conclude that the shell model calculations with Skyrme type interaction give a good tool for nuclear structure studies. All signs for the experimental electromagnetic moments data are reproduced correctly. The longitudinal and transverse form factors for positive and negative parity states are fairly well reproduced when using a suitable model space.
