Abstract : A gamma-ray spectrometer was built using a liquidscintillator anticoincidence shield for a 5 in dia x 10 in long NaI(T1) crystal. The spectrometer was used to study radiation from the N14(p, gamma)015 reaction for proton energies of from 0.97 to 1.96 MeV. Decay schemes for the 8.29, 8.75, 8.92, and 8.98 Mev levels in 015 were derived. (Author)
