The work presented in this thesis describes an experimental study of (γ,n) reactions on ¹⁶O and ⁶Li nuclei using 50-70 MeV tagged photons. At this photon energy range, the so-called intermediate energy region, the photon absorption mechanism is not quantitatively established, but it is thought that pion-exchange-current effects are important. At the Max-Lab tagged photon facility in Lund (Sweden) it is possible to measure both (γ,N) and (γ,NN) reactions where N is either proton or neutron. The (γ,n) measurements, performed by the Glasgow-Lund collaboration, are unique to this facility. The present experiment was performed using the Glasgow-Lund time-of-flight (TOF) spectrometer where emitted neutrons were detected by two liquid scintillator arrays positioned at 45° and 105° to the photon beam.
