    摘要: The recently discovered, extremely proton-rich nuclide18Mg exhibits ground-state decay via two sequential two-proton (2p) emissions through the intermediate nucleus,16Ne. This study investigates the structure and the initial2pdecay mechanism of18Mgby examining the density and correlations of the valence protons using a three-body Gamow-coupled-channel method. The results show that the ground state of18Mgis significantly influenced by the continuum, resulting in a significants-wave component. However, based on the current frame- work, this does not lead to a significant deviation in mirror symmetry in either the structure or spectroscopy of the18Mg-18Cpair. Additionally, the time evolution analysis of the18Mgground state suggests a simultaneous2pemission during the first step of decay. The observed nucleon–nucleon correlations align with those of the light–mass2pemitters, indicating a consistent decay behavior within this nuclear region.
