^7Be(p,γ)^8B cross section and the properties of ^7Be


We study the nonresonant part of the ^7Be(p,γ)^8B reaction using a three-cluster resonating group model that is variationally converged and virtually complete in ^4He+^3He+p model space. The importance of using adequate nucleon-nucleon interaction is demonstrated. We find that the low-energy astrophysical S factor is linearly correlated with the quadrupole moment of ^7Be. A range of parameters is found where the most important ^8B, ^7Be, and ^7Li properties are reproduced simultaneously; the corresponding S factor at E_(c.m.)=20 keV is 24.6–26.1 eV b
