Two Gammasphere experiments have been performed in order to establish the possible triaxial nature of strongly deformed (SD) bands in174Hf. A lifetime measurement confirmed the large deformation of the four previously observed bands in this nucleus. In addition, a thin-target, high-statistics experiment was carried out to search for linking transitions between the SD bands. No such transitions, which represent an experimental signature for wobbling modes, were observed. Four new SD bands were...[Show more]
