Excited states in 132,134Nd were populated in the ?+/? decay of 132,134Pm and studied through off-beam ?-ray spectroscopy. Level spins and multipole mixing ratios of transitions were determined through an angular correlation analysis. In 132Nd, a new excited 0+ state is identified and in 134Nd the level scheme is significantly extended. Differences in the location of the 02+ state and the ? bandhead above and below N=82 suggest that the lighter isotopes are much more ?-soft than the heavier Nd...[Show more]
