Abstract

Nuclear systems are usually considered to be in the liquid phase, however, here we discuss the competition between the shell (liquid phase) and cluster structure in light neutron-rich nuclei. The appearance of molecular structure of α clusters with a geometric (equilateral triangular) shape is stabilized by the valence neutrons, and the nuclear systems with specific shapes are considered to be in the solid state. Also, α-condensed states originally suggested in 12C and 16O are extended to heavier nuclei with core nucleus, which are in the gas phase.
