The excitation function of the resonant reaction 4He(9Li,α) was measured with the aim of investigating the compound nucleus 13B. These measurements were performed in inverse kinematics at center-of-mass scattering angles close to 180° by using a thick 4He gas target and a 9Li beam. The 13B excitation energy region explored was 14-20 MeV where 9Li-αurations of 13B are predicted by Antysimmetrised Molecular Dynamics calculations. The measured excitation function at θcm= 180°s different clear structures in a 13B excitation energy region which was experimentally unknown.
