NOTE: Text or symbols not renderable in plain ASCII are indicated by [...]. Abstract is included in .pdf document. An efficient NaI(T1) scintillation gamma-ray spectrometer is described, and its theoretical and experimental characteristics are given for gamma-ray energies from 0.5 Mev to 10 Mev. This spectrometer was used to measure the gamma-radiation from two proton-induced reactions. Presentation of the analysis of the data obtained at seven resonances of the first reaction, C13(p,[gamma])N14, is followed by a discussion on the energy levels in N14. The results obtained for the second reaction, C12(p,[gamma]p?)C12, are likewise given, and are followed by a brief descriptive theory of the reaction.
