Abstract : The (n, alpha) reactions induced in germanium by 14 MeV neutrons have been observed in a germanium semiconductor detector. Values of the cross section of the ground-state transition of Ge73(n, alpha)Zn70 at 14.1 and 14.8 MeV are presented along with possible evidence for the existence of excited states of Zn70 at 1.95=0.1 MeV and at 2.3=0.1 MeV. Evidence for a reduced response of the detector to the Zn recoil atoms is discussed. (Author)
