The C-12( O-18, C-14 + Be-8) Be-8 reaction was studied at a beam energy of 140 MeV. Two multi-element charged-particle telescopes were used to detect the decay of Ne-22 states into C-14 + Be-8. The reconstructed excitation energy spectrum indicates that two states at 24.14( 20) and 26.89( 20) MeV decay by Be-8 emission. These states may be linked to a C-14 + 2 alpha cluster structure in Ne-22.
