Let me first correct my question. I am looking at the reaction:
18O(gamma,proton)17N, with 17N later on undergoing beta-decay: 17N -> e + 16O + n (T1/2 = 4.15 seconds)
My initial message was missing the neutron (the whole reason why I am interested in this reaction - is to see the delayed neutron).
Michel, Thanks for answering! I may have misunderstood your answer though..
My problem, I guess, is not radioactive decay of 17N per se. What I would like to have is to be able to shoot gammas at Oxygen-18, and observe a *delayed* neutron later on, with correct energy and correct timing (the neutron should be created with such a delay that the half-life of 17N is about 4 seconds). The mechanism of appearing of this delayed neutron is like I described above.
Is this possible?
Does your answer mean that if I find a hadronic package that gives me 18O(gamma,proton)17N, I might be able to attach a radioactiveDecay package to it in some modular physics list, and my which of observing a delayed neutron after shooting 23.5 MeV gammas at Oxygen -18 will come true?
