Three-body bound states and structure calculations of the He2-Ne system using the slow variable discretization method
The He2-Ne system with the combination of the isotopes of helium (He3 and He4) is used in structure calculations. Three-body channel functions and adiabatic potential functions have been calculated using the B-spline method. We use these channel functions in the slow variable discretization method to calculate the three-body bound states of the He2-Ne system. Using this method, two bound states for the 4He2-20Ne system and one bound state for each of the He4-He3-Ne20 and He32-Ne20 systems have been found. The geometry of the trimer is also analyzed using the probability densities and expectation values.
