Structure of unstable 21,23,25,26F nuclei have been investigated
using Hartree – Fock (HF) and shell model calculations. The ground
state proton, neutron and matter density distributions, root mean
square (rms) radii and neutron skin thickness of these isotopes are
studied. Shell model calculations are performed using SDBA
interaction. In HF method the selected effective nuclear interactions,
namely the Skyrme parameterizations SLy4, Skeσ, SkBsk9 and
Skxs25 are used. Also, the elastic electron scattering form factors of
these isotopes are studied. The calculated form factors in HF
calculations show many diffraction minima in contrary to shell
model, which predicts less diffraction minima. The long tail
behaviour in nuclear density is noticeable seen in HF more than shell
model calculations. The deviation occurs between shell model and
HF results are attributed to the sensitivity of charge form factors to
the change of the tail part of the charge density. Calculations done
for the rms radii in shell model showed excellent agreement with
experimental values, while HF results showed an overestimation in
the calculated rms radii for 21,23F and good agreement for 25,26F. In
general, it is found that the shell model and HF results have the same
behaviour when the mass number (A) increase.
