Exploring new excitation modes and the role of the nuclear clustering has been of great interest. An interesting speculation was made in the recent photoabsorption measurement of 6Li that implied the importance of the nuclear clustering. To understand the excitation mechanism of 6Li, we perform a fully microscopic six-body calculation on the electric-dipole (E1) transitions and discuss how 6Li is excited by the E1 field as a function of the excitation energy. We show the various cluster components in the six-body wave functions and discuss the role of the nuclear clustering in the E1 excitations of 6Li.

The paper presents 6-body microscopic calculations of electric dipole transitions in 6Li. It is written in a clear way and gives an insight into the structure of excited 6Li states and its influence on various transition modes. I recommend to publish it after a few clarifications.
1) As I understand the basis used involves wave functions that asymptotically decrease. Therefore, the continuum nature of the excited states is not taken into account. This is why excited states have well-defined energies and B(E1) probabilities are given by lines. This feature of the theory is not mentioned in the text and it would be helpful to make it clear to the reader. Also, it would be nice to comment on the possibility of including the continuum explicitly.
2) What is the definition of the spectroscopic factors used? Is it the same as the widely-accepted one? The definition of the spectroscopic factor should be given. It would also be useful to tell the reader what the spectroscopic factors for the 6Li ground state are. The spectroscopic factors are denoted as S rather than S^2 by those who investigate them experimentally.
3) It would be useful to add experimental 6Li energy in Fig. 1.
4) In first paragraph of Conclusion “asympototic “ - - > “asymptotic”.
