Erbium nuclei are bomarded with bremstrahlung photons by using clinical electron linear accelerator to perform photonuclear reactions. In this experiment, possible of neutron capture process has been observed because of emitted neutrons appearing experimental area. In this experiment, neutron capture of 170Er nuclei and after the 171Er decays into the 171Tm have been observed. 171Er half-life and some transition energies of 171Tm have been determined. The results are found in agreement with available experimental data.
