In order to search for the α condensed state in 16O, we have performed the decay particle measurement via the 12 C ( 16O, 16O* [α + 12C (g.s., 2 1+, 02+)])12C reaction. Although the decay branching ratio of the α + 12C channel was predicted to be small, the branching ratio between the α + 12C and α + 12C(21+) channels was obtained to be 7:3 by using the result of a simple simulation.
