Reply to "Comment on 'Neutron knockout of Be-12 populating neutron-unbound states in Be-11' "
In the preceding Comment, Fortune argues that, in our original paper [Peters et al., Phys. Rev. C 83, 057304 (2011)], we did not or could not separate the two neutron-unbound states in Be-11 near 4MeV. However, including the suggested contribution of the 3.887-MeV state decaying via 18 keV to the 2(+) state in Be-10 does not fit the data; neither do any other attempts incorporating any contribution of this decay channel. The best fit was achieved with a single resonance of decay energy 80(2) keV.
