The cross section for the capture of protons by C13 at 129 kilovolts is σ=5±1×10^-33 cm^2. This measurement was made possible through the use of a scintillation counter that had an over-all detection efficiency of 8.7 percent, and a pulsed ion source that had a peak proton current capability of one milliampere. A rough analysis of the radiation shows that 80 percent is due to the transition to the ground state of N14, while the exact nature of the remaining 20 percent was not determined.
