Starting from the Skyrme interaction SLy4 we study the effects of phonon-phonon coupling on the low-energy electric dipole response in 130−134Sn, 132−136Te and 134−138Xe. Our calculations are performed within the finite-rank separable approximation, which enables one to perform quasiparticle random phase approximation calculations in very large two-quasiparticle configuration spaces. A dependence of the pygmy dipole resonance strengths on the neutron skin thickness is found. The inclusion of the two-phonon configurations gives a considerable contribution to the low-lying strength.
