Inelastic scattering data of11Li from hydrogen at 68A MeV have been interpreted as the excitation of a state in11Li at Ex= 1.3 MeV, with an assignment of J#x02C0;= 3/2+. Analysis of those data in a distorted wave approximation assuming transitions to three candidates obtained in a (0+2)ħω shell model suggests an alternative nuclear shakeoff mechanism.
