Largely enhanced parity-violating effects observed in compound resonances induced by epithermal neutrons are currently attributed to the mixing of parity-unfavored partial amplitudes in the entrance channel of the compound states. Furthermore, it is proposed that the same mechanism that enhances the parity violation also enhances the breaking of time-reversal invariance in the compound nucleus. The entrance-channel mixing induces energy-dependent spin-angular correlations of individual γ rays emitted from the compound nuclear state. For a detailed study of the mixing model, the γ-ray yield in the reaction of Sn117(n,γ)Sn118 was measured using a pulsed beam of polarized epithermal neutrons and Ge detectors. An angular dependence of asymmetric γ-ray yields for the orientation of the neutron polarization was observed.
