McCutchan, E A; Casten, R.F.; Werner, V.; Williams, Elizabeth; Winkler, R.; Wolf, A.; Berant, Z; Gurdal, G.; Qian, J.; Ai, H.; Amon, L.; Beausang, C. W.


Excited low-spin, nonyrast states in Hf170,172,174 were populated in ?+/? decay and studied through off-beam ?-ray spectroscopy. New coincidence data allowed for a substantial revision of the level schemes of Hf170,172 and a confirmation of the level scheme of Hf174. The Hf isotopes represent a unique situation in which a crossing of collective intrinsic excitations occurs, enhancing significantly the effects of mixing. Using branching ratios from excited 2+ states, this mixing is followed and...[Show more]
