We study 7Li(n, n′)7Li* reactions by using the continuum-discretized coupled-channels (CDCC) method with the complex Jeukenne-Lejeune-Mahaux effective nucleon-nucleon interaction. In this study, the 7Li nucleus is described by an α+t cluster model. The calculated elastic cross sections for incident energies between 11.5 and 24.0 MeV show good agreements with experimental data. Furthermore, we calculate the neutron spectra of 7Li ground and excited breakup states measured at selected angular points for incident energies of 11.5 and 18.0 MeV. The results reproduce the observed data systematically.
