3 Motivation Di-Neutron correlation appears in soft dipole excitations of medium- mass nuclei near drip-line. M. Matsuo et al., PRC71(2005) We investigate the pairing effect in the soft octupole excitations of medium- mass nuclei near the neutron drip-line. Purpose: Does the di-neutron correlation appears in the other multipole excitations? Motivation: I. Hamamoto et al., PRC64, (2001), X.R. Zhou et al., NPA723, 375 (2003). - Study by using continuum RPA:
4 Method M. Matsuo NPA696, 371 (2001). - Both continuum and pairing are treated in descriptions of excited states. - Appropriate to study the di-neutron dynamics. We use the continuum QRPA.

13 Summary The di-neutron correlation appears in the soft octupole excitations. By using the continuum QRPA method, we investigate the soft octupole excitations of medium-mass nuclei near the neutron drip line. Result: - The di-neutron correlation is less clear than the soft dipole excitations. - The di-neutron correlation is more significant as we approarch the neutron drip line. - The features of the di-neutron correlation are sensitive to depth of the Fermi surface.
