The phenomenon of wobbling can only occur for a nuclear shape with stable triaxial deformation. To date, only a few examples of this exotic collective mode have been observed in lutetium and tantalum isotopes. A search for a wobbling sequence was performed in 171Re to determine if this feature can be observed in Z>73 nuclei. No evidence was found for wobbling; however, an interaction between the ?i13/2 sequence and another positive-parity band may give an indication on why wobbling may not...[Show more]
