Resonances at Eα=401,814, and 953 keV were observed in the 7Li(α,γ) reaction. From the thick target yields the corresponding states in 11B at 8920, 9185, and 9274 keV were found to have center-of-mass resonance strengths of 0.0088±0.0014, 0.317±0.047, and 1.72±0.17 eV, respectively. The radiative widths deduced for the latter two states are 0.17-0.03+0.06 and 1.15±0.16 eV, respectively. Using a 40 mCi 7Be target, α-capture resonances were observed at Eα=884 (11C* = 8105 keV) and 1376 (11C* = 8421 keV) keV with center-of-mass resonance strengths of 0.331±0.041 and 3.80±0.57 eV, respectively. The radiative widths deduced for these states are 0.350±0.056 and 3.1±1.3 eV, respectively. The observed decay rates are compared with theoretical calculations.
