Resonance fluorescence has been used for measuring the widths of over 42 levels in 40Ar below 11 MeV by employing Ge(Li) detectors and bremsstrahlung beams with end point energies of 8.5, 10.3, and 11.8 MeV. The gΓ20/Γ of these levels were measured, and several J=1 levels were identified. A strong photon strength was found, extending between 8 and 11 MeV which complements a bump observed between 10.4 and 12.4 MeV using the (ϒ,n) reaction. This behavior is theoretically explained using the open-shell-linear-response method.
