Abstract In order to obtain data on the photon absorption process between the giant resonance and the meson threshold the cross sections of the reactions12C(γ,n)11C,12C(γ, 2n)10C,39K(γ,n)38Kg, and40Ca(γ,np)38Kg have been determined by the analysis of yield curves at the 140 MeV electron synchrotron of the PTB. Though the (γ,n) cross sections grow small with increasing photon energy they are different from zero up to energies of 60 MeV and above. The cross section of the reaction12C(γ, 2n) is extremely small; its highest value amounts to 0.15% of the highest value of the12C(γ,n) reaction. The measured40Ca(γ,np) cross section is of the order predicted by the naive quasi-deuteron model. The integrated cross sections of the above reactions up to 140MeV are 85±7,0.90±0.10, 139±16, and 76±7MeVmb respectively.
