    Multiplicities of quasi-continuum γ-rays have been measured for the 160Gd(α, xnγ) reactions as a function of bombarding energy and for the 4n exit channel also as a function of γ-ray energy. Increase of beam energy causes initially an increase of the energy and angular momentum of the entry line in the residual nucleus until the neutron “drip line” is reached. This can be understood in terms of competing compound and precompound processes.
