Title: Structure of the Lightest Tin Isotopes

Abstract

Here, we link the structure of nuclei around 100Sn, the heaviest doubly magic nucleus with equal neutron and proton numbers (N=Z=50), to nucleon-nucleon (NN) and three-nucleon (NNN) forces constrained by data of few-nucleon systems. Our results indicate that 100Sn is doubly magic, and we predict its quadrupole collectivity. We present precise computations of 101Sn based on three-particle–two-hole excitations of 100Sn, and we find that one interaction accurately reproduces the small splitting between the lowest J π = 7/2 + and 5/2 + states.
