Title: He 3 ( α , γ ) Be 7 and H 3 ( α , γ ) Li 7 astrophysical S factors from the no-core shell model with continuum

The 3He(α,γ) 7Be and 3H(α,γ) 7Li astrophysical S factors are calculated within the no-core shell model with continuum using a renormalized chiral nucleon–nucleon interaction. The 3He(α,γ) 7Be astrophysical S factors agree reasonably well with the experimental data while the 3H(α,γ) 7Li ones are overestimated. The seven-nucleon bound and resonance states and the α + 3He/ 3H elastic scattering are also studied and compared with experiment. Here, the low-lying resonance properties are rather well reproduced by our approach. At low energies, the s-wave phase shift, which is non-resonant, is overestimated.
