The three-body α + 2N model developed in our earlier works to describe the ground states of the A = 6 nuclei is generalized here to describe the spectrum of the low-lying states of these nuclei. The levels of the nuclei are shown to be differently sensitive to the various Nα interaction components, whence some conclusions concerning the true form of the Nα interaction are drawn. The geometric structure of the6Li and6He ground states is studied in detail. A significant contribution of the stretched cigar-shaped three-particle configuration NαN with an α-particle between two nucleons has been found. The wave functions of the ground and excited states of the A = 6 nuclei are tabulated. The wave functions found have been tested carefully using numerous experimental data. © 1986.
