Results are presented for the total and the apparent cross section measured
in (3)Hep interactions at an incident momentum of 8.0 GeV/c and for an ano
malously short mean free path of Z = 2 secondary nuclei from these interact
ions. About 14000 Z = 2 nuclei leading to 2319 secondary interactions are s
tudied. An admixture of 0.5% of anomalons is found with a mean free path of
1.5 cm to be compared with around 250 cm for primary interactions. Our res
ults are compared with other data from the interactions of I Ie nuclei with
protons at various energies. (C) 2001 MAIK "Nauka/Interperiodica".
