We measured the reaction cross sections of the two-neutron halo nucleus 14Be with proton and carbon targets at about 41 and 76 MeV/nucleon. Based on a Glauber model calculation, we deduced the matter density distribution of 14Be in which previously measured interaction cross sections at relativistic energies were also included. An s-wave dominance in 14Be has been confirmed, although the halo tail of 14Be is not distributed as much as that of 11Li. Significant mixing of the p-wave in addition to the s- and d-wave is also suggested.
