The lithium can be pictured as an a particle with 2 extra nucleon surrounding it. A photonuclear reaction experiment has been performed to test this structure at Maxlab in Lund-Sweden. The cross-section of the (6)Li(gamma,n) reaction have been measured using TOF methods and the results were compared with results of (6)Li(gamma,p) and also (4)He(gamma,n) reaction.
