abstractNote = {While diproton emission was first theorized in 1960 and first measured in 2002, it was first observed only in 2012. The measurement of 14Be in coincidence with two neutrons suggests that 16Be does decay through the simultaneous emission of two strongly correlated neutrons. In this study, we construct a full three-body model of 16Be (as 14Be + n + n) in order to investigate its configuration in the continuum and, in particular, the structure of its ground state. Here, in order to describe the three-body system, effective n – 14Be potentials were constructed, constrained by the experimental information on 15Be. The hyperspherical R-matrix method was used to solve the three-body scattering problem, and the resonance energy of 16Be was extracted from a phase-shift analysis. As a result, in order to reproduce the experimental resonance energy of 16Be within this three-body model, a three-body interaction was needed. For extracting the width of the ground state of 16Be, we use the full width at half maximum of the derivative of the three-body eigenphase shifts and the width of the three-body elastic scattering cross section. In conclusion, our results confirm a dineutron structure for 16Be, dependent on the internal structure of the subsystem 15Be.},
