The photoabsorption cross section of 139La was measured up to the neutron-separation energy using bremsstrahlung produced at the electron accelerator ELBE of the Forschungszentrum Dresden-Rossendorf with a beam of 11.5 MeV kinetic energy. To estimate branching ratios of transitions from states in the quasicontinuum, we performed simulations of γ-ray cascades. The photoabsorption cross section deduced from the resulting intensities of the ground-state transitions can be combined with photoneutron cross sections to obtain data in a wide energy range up to the giant dipole resonance (GDR). We observe an enhancement of electric dipole strength relative to a Lorentz-like tail of the GDR that cannot be quantitatively reproduced by current model calculations.
