  • Background: Magnetic dipole (M1) excitation is the leading mode of nuclear excitation by the magnetic field, which couples unnatural-parity states. As expected from the form of operator, this mode may provide the information on the spin-related properties, including dineutron and diproton correlations [1-4].
  • Purpose: The M1 excitation of two valence nucleons with pairing correlation is investigated. Possibility to utilize the M1 excitation as the probe into the dinucleon correlation is also discussed.
  • Method: Three-body model [1-3, 5], which consists of a rigid core and two valence nucleons, is employed. Interactions for its two-body subsystems are phenomenologically determined in order to reproduce the two-body and three-body energies. We also derive the M1 sum rule within the three-body picture. This sum-rule can be utilized to benchmark our model and result.
  • Conclusion: A significant role of the pairing correlation to suppress the M1 excitation is shown.
    The sum-rule value of M1, as well as its strength distribution, can be a suitable observable to probe the effect of pairing, especially on the coupled spin of the valence nucleons.
