Measured angular distributions of tritons following the 6Li(n,t)α reaction are reported for incident neutron energies between 0.19 to > MeV. The neutrons were produced by spallation at the WNR facility at the Los Alamos Neutron Science CEnter (LANSCE), with the incident neutron energy determined by the time-of-flight method. The data were taken with four E-ΔE telescopes at eight laboratory angles. These data have been incorporated into an R-matrix analysis of the 6Li(n,t)α reaction. The current measurements are compared to previous data, and the implications of these data to the current R-matrix analysis are discussed.
