abstract

  • The energies of the gamma rays following the beta decay of 92.5 min 142La have been precisely measured, and a coincidence measurement with a NaI(Tl) and Ge(Li) system was made by gating the NaI(Tl) at 641 keV. With these results, the decay scheme of 142Ce derived by Prestwich and Kennett was modified. The beta branching ratios of the decay of 142La to the ground and excited states of 142Ce have also been obtained by simultaneous gamma and 4π beta countings with a 3 in. × 3 in. NaI(Tl) detector and a 4π-proportional counter.
