We have studied the nuclear reaction Li-6 + p => He-3 + He-4 using protons from the 200-keV linear accelerator located in the Manning Nuclear Physics Laboratory in the Neils Science Center. We have measured the angular distribution and energy of the resulting He-3 and He-4 nuclei. Measurements were made using a Si surface barrier detector. The incident proton energy was 125 keV, and the angular measurements were made between 150 and 120 degrees downstream of the beam. Results and highlights are presented.
