We investigate Li6(n,n)6Li *→d+α reactions by using the continuum-discretized coupled-channels method with the complex Jeukenne-Lejeune-Mahaux effective nucleon-nucleon interaction. In this study, the Li6 nucleus is described by a d+α cluster model. The calculated elastic cross sections for incident energies between 7.47 and 24.0 MeV are in good agreement with experimental data. Furthermore, we show that the neutron spectra for Li6 breakup states measured at selected angular points and incident energies can be also reproduced systematically.
