To estimate the production rate of long-lived radio-nuclides during the controlled thermonuclear burning of exotic fuels, cross sections for the ^(11)B(α, p)^(14)C reaction have been measured for α-particle energies in the range 1.43 to 2.94 MeV. Angular distributions have been measured at 20 keV intervals within this energy range. Five resonances have been identified corresponding to states in ^(15)N at excitation energies from 12 to 13 MeV. A discussion of possible spin, parity assignments is presented.
