From the Stable to the Exotic: Clustering in Light Nuclei

Chapter
Part of the FIAS Interdisciplinary Science Series book series (FIAS)

Abstract

A great deal of research work has been undertaken in \(\alpha \)-clustering study since the pioneering discovery of \(^{12}\)C+\(^{12}\)C molecular resonances half a century ago. Our knowledge on physics of nuclear molecules has increased considerably and nuclear clustering remains one of the most fruitful domains of nuclear physics, facing some of the greatest challenges and opportunities in the years ahead. The occurrence of “exotic” shapes in light \(N = Z\,\alpha \)-like nuclei is investigated. Various approaches of the superdeformed and hyperdeformed bands associated with quasimolecular resonant structures are presented. Evolution of clustering from stability to the drip-lines is examined: clustering aspects are, in particular, discussed for light exotic nuclei with large neutron excess such as neutron-rich Oxygen isotopes with their complete spectroscopy.
