    • Abstract


      The total (α, n) reaction cross section for19F has been measured as a function of alpha energy in the energy range 2·6 to 5·1 MeV with a thin target. The excitation function exhibits a large number of resonances. The prominent amongst these for which theJπ values are known have been analysed to extract the partial widthsΓα and Γn. Statistical analysis of the data in terms of strength function and average level spacing distribution has also been performed.
