The neutron-unbound nucleus Be13 was populated with a nucleon exchange reaction from a 71 MeV/u secondary B13 beam. The decay-energy spectrum was reconstructed using invariant mass spectroscopy based on Be12 fragments in coincidence with neutrons. The data could be described with an s-wave resonance at Er=0.73(9)MeV with a width of Γr=1.98(34)MeV and a d-wave resonance at Er=2.56(13)MeV with a width of Γr=2.29(73)MeV. The observed spectral shape is consistent with previous one-proton removal reaction measurements from B14.
