Charge radii and electromagnetic moments of Li and Be isotopes from the ab initio no-core shell model

C. Forssén et al.

Recently, charge radii and ground-state electromagnetic moments of Li and Be isotopes were measured precisely. We have performed large-scale ab initio no-core shell model calculations for these isotopes using high-precision nucleon-nucleon potentials. The isotopic trends of our computed charge radii and quadrupole and magnetic-dipole moments are in good agreement with experimental results with the exception of the 11Li charge radius. The magnetic moments are in particular well described, whereas the absolute magnitudes of the quadrupole moments are about 10% too small. The small magnitude of the 6Li quadrupole moment is reproduced, and with the CD-Bonn NN potential, also its correct sign.
