abstract

  • A high-resolution study of the γ-ray spectrum induced by the inelastic scattering of reactor produced neutrons has been conducted. The γ rays observed have been assigned in a decay scheme involving 134 levels extending in excitation energy to 6 MeV. The results are discussed within the context of previously identified weak coupling configurations, and possible discrepancies are indicated. Levels in the high-energy region are also compared with recently reported photoexcitation studies.
