The forward-to-backward asymmetry of neutrons emitted in the [Formula Presented]Ca[Formula Presented] reaction was measured at photon energies in the range of 27–50 MeV. An energy-dependent asymmetry was observed that is interpreted as evidence of interference between the isovector quadrupole resonance and the giant dipole resonance. Data analysis in terms of semiclassical and direct-semidirect models estimate the isovector quadrupole resonance to be at an excitation energy of [Formula Presented] MeV, with a width of [Formula Presented] MeV, and exhausting most of the energy-weighted sum rule for the isovector quadrupole resonance. © 1997 The American Physical Society.
