Gamma-ray branches that connect high-K states to low-K states in the s-process nucleus Lu176 were observed, thus providing a link between the 58 Gyr, 7- ground state and the 5.3 h, 1- isomeric state. High sensitivity and unambiguous placement were achieved through the study of the decay of the 58 μs Kπ=14+ isomer using γ-γ-coincidence measurements. The large number of decay paths from the isomer provides a means of populating a broad selection of states from above, resulting, paradoxically, in...[Show more]
