Determining at microscopic level the interaction responsible for the excitation of collective states of140Ce makes it possible to use in a coherent way the direct-semidirect model in the study of the140Ce( {Mathematical expression}, γ) reaction. Computations of differential cross-sections give useful pieces of information about the effects caused by the excitation of the isovector quadrupole giant resonance on the γ-ray emission geometry, closely connected with the polarization state of the incident neutron. Thus, the results supply helpful suggestions on a possible experimental research of the E2(T=1) excitation by means of the radiative capture reaction. © 1992 Società Italiana di Fisica.
