Neutron energy-dependent angular distributions were observed for individual $$gamma$$ rays from the 0.74 eV $$p$$-wave resonance of $$^{139}$$La+$$n$$ to several lower excited states of $$^{140}$$La. The $$gamma$$-ray signals were analyzed in a two dimensional histogram of the $$gamma$$-ray energy, measured with distributed germanium detectors, and neutron energy, determined with the time-of-flight of pulsed neutrons, to identify the neutron energy dependence of the angular distribution for each individual $$gamma$$ rays. The angular distribution was also found for a photopeak accompanied with a faint $$p$$-wave resonance component in the neutron energy spectrum. Our results can be interpreted as interference between $$s$$- and $$p$$-wave amplitudes which may be used to study discrete symmetries of fundamental interactions.
