Description

In this talk, I will present a number of Quantum Monte Carlo calculations of electromagnetic observables in light nuclei (A<=10) including electromagnetic moments, M1 and E2 transitions. These calculations use wave functions generated from nuclear Hamiltonians with two- and three-nucleon realistic potentials. In addition to impulse approximation terms, nuclear electromagnetic currents account for two-body operators derived from chiral effective field theory. These studies show that many-body contributions in both nuclear Hamiltonians and transition currents are crucial to reach agreement with the experimental data.
