Abstract

The capture γ rays from the reaction Li7(p, γ) have been investigated by measuring excitation functions and angular distributions. In addition to the well-known resonance at 441 kev, the excitation curve exhibits resonance at 1030 kev in proton bombarding energy corresponding to an excited state at 18.14 Mev in Be8. Near this resonance the γ rays have a nonisotropic angular distribution with fore-and-aft asymmetry. The yield integrated over this resonance corresponds to a radiation width given by ωΓγ=2 ev.
