Alpha Decay Width of $^{212}$Po from a quartetting wave function approach

Abstract : A microscopic calculation of $\alpha$-cluster preformation probability and $\alpha$ decay width in the typical $\alpha$ emitter $^{212}$Po is presented. Results are obtained by improving a recent approach to describe $\alpha$ preformation in $^{212}$Po [Phys. Rev. C 90, 034304 (2014)] implementing four-nucleon correlations (quartetting). Using the actually measured density distribution of the $^{208}$ Pb core, the calculated alpha decay width of $^{212}$Po agrees fairly well with the measured one.
