Dancer, S.N. et al. (1988) Investigation of the C12(γ,pn) reaction using tagged photons. Physical Review Letters, 61(10), pp. 1170-1173. (doi: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.61.1170)

Tagged-photon measurements of the C12(γ,pn) reaction in the photon energy range 83-133 MeV are reported. The measurements have achieved a good angular resolution, ≃4°, and a better missing-energy resolution, ≃8 MeV, than any previous measurement. This has allowed events to be selected in which both the neutron and proton are ejected from the 1p shell of the C12 nucleus. The correlation of the momenta of the outgoing nucleon pairs is quantitatively explained by the quasideuteron mechanism.
