The triton spectrum from the reaction Li6(He3,t)Be6 has been measured in a 61-cm double-focusing magnetic spectrometer at He3 bombarding energies of 10, 11, and 12 MeV, and at observation angles of 1.7° and 10°. A triton group corresponding to the Be6 ground-state transition was seen. The Q value for the ground-state transition is (-4.306±0.006) MeV, leading to a Be6-Li6 mass difference of 4.288±0.006 MeV, in good agreement with the values from the Li6(p,n)Be6 threshold. The width of the ground state of Be6 is (89±6) keV.
