AbstractPSR J1946+3417 is a millisecond pulsar (MSP) with a spin period P similar or equal to 3.17 ms. Harbored in a binary with an orbital period P (b) similar or equal to 27 days, the MSP is accompanied by a white dwarf (WD). The masses of the MSP and the WD were determined to be 1.83 M (circle dot) and 0.266 M (circle dot), respectively. Specially, its orbital eccentricity is e similar or equal to 0.134, which is challenging the recycling model of MSPs. Assuming that the neutron star in a binary may collapse to a strange star when its mass reaches a critical limit, we propose a phase transition (PT) scenario to account for the origin of the system. The sudden mass loss and the kick induced by asymmetric collapse during the PT may result in the orbital eccentricity. If the PT event takes place after the mass transfer ceases, the eccentric orbit cannot be re-circularized in the Hubble time. Aiming at the masses of both components, we simulate the evolution of the progenitor of PSR J1946+3417 via MESA. The simulations show that an NS / main sequence star binary with initial masses of 1.4+1.6 M (circle dot) in an initial orbit of 2.59 days will evolve into a binary consisting of a 2.0 M (circle dot) MSP and a 0.27 M (circle dot) WD in an orbit of similar to 21.5 days. Assuming that the gravitational mass loss fraction during PT is 10%, we simulate the effect of PT via the kick program of BSE with a velocity of sigma (PT) = 60 km s(-1). The results show that the PT scenario can reproduce the observed orbital period and eccentricity with higher probability than other values.
