alpha-cluster states and 4alpha-particle bose condensate in 16O

Abstract : In order to explore the 4α-particle condensate state in 16O, we solve a full four-body equation of motion based on the 4α OCM (Orthogonality Condition Model) in a large 4α model space spanned by Gaussian basis functions. A full spectrum up to the 06+ state is reproduced consistently with the lowest six 0+ states of experimental spectrum. The 06+ state is obtained at 2 MeV above the 4α breakup threshold and has a dilute density structure, where the rms radius is more than 5 fm. The state has an appreciably large α condensate fraction 61%, and a highly amount of α+12C(02+) components, both of which are strong pieces of evidence of the state being the 4α condensate state.
