The nuclear break-up of He-6 on a Pb-208 target was studied at 20 A MeV using a secondary beam of He-6 produced by the SPIRAL facility at GANIL. alpha-particles were detected in coincidence with two neutrons with a large angular coverage and the reaction mechanism was identified. From the distribution of the relative angles between the two neutrons the correlation function was extracted. It shows a strong correlation at small relative angles attributed to the contribution of the di-neutron configuration of He-6.
