Abstract

The meson-exchange currents and nucleon-nucleon short-range correlation have been invoked in the calculation of the charge form factor of Li6 in the shell model with a harmonic-oscillator basis. The contribution from exchange current to the correlated form factor is not large for small momentum transfer but becomes significantly noticeable around the first minimum. A second minimum at q2=26.0 fm-2 is predicted by correlation but the exchange-current contribution brings this to around q2=24.0 fm-2.
