The 14N(γ,π+)14Cg.s. cross section at Eγ=173 MeV has been calculated using shell model wave functions determined in complete (0+2)ℏω and (0+2+4)ℏω shell model spaces. Using the (0+2+4)ℏω shell model wave functions yields an improvement over older results obtained with Cohen-Kurath wave functions by a factor of 2, but still overpredicts the back-angle data. When correlated with analyses of inelastic electron and proton scattering from 14N, the present results indicate the need for an improved shell model calculation and possibly an improved description of the elementary pion production process in nuclei.
