In a selfconsistent emission theory, the product between the reduced width and penetrability in the decay width should not depend upon the matching radius. This condition is not a trivial one in the microscopic theory and this point is extensively discussed in this chapter. We show that the standard shell model approach is not able to satisfy this property along neutron chains. Only the inclusion of an α-cluster part, depending exponentially upon the Somerfeld parameter, is able to cure this deficiency
