Vertex function and coupling constant for the virtual decay of7Li

  • V. K. Sharma


The alpha-triton relative wave function with various nucleon exchange contributions and their asymptotic normalization are considered in the framework of the generator coordinate method (GCM). The asymptotic normalization of relative wave function provide the estimate of the coupling constant. The relative wave function is also used to obtain7Li-α-t vertex function in the virtual decay of7Li. The extrapolation of vertex function for negative values ofq 2 up to the alpha-triton pole provide the vertex constant, which is compared with the experimentally determined estimates 0.67 FM and 0.72 FM. Our calculated value is 0.656 FM which is in close agreement with the above estimates.
