    • Abstract


      The excited states of Li4, Li5 and Be8 have been investigated by studying the final state interactions in the π-mesic decays ofΛHe4,ΛHe5 andΛLi8 respectively. The experimental results indicate the existence of final states like Li5* at 1·8 MeV and Be8* at 0 and 2·9 MeV to be dominant in the decay ofΛHe5* andΛLi8 respectively; the results on the decay ofΛHe4 suggest the presence of a Li4* state at about 4 MeV to dominate.
