Shape coexistence and electric monopole transitions in Pt184
Levels in Pt184 were studied from the decay of mass-separated Au184 by gamma-ray and conversion-electron spectroscopy and by gamma-ray angular distributions from low-temperature nuclear orientation. In addition to coexisting K=0+ bands, coexisting K=2+ bands are observed at low energy. String interband electric monopole transitions are observed between states of the two K=0+ bands and also between states of the two K=2+ bands. The coexistence of K=2+ bands at low energy represents a new type of collective structure. © 1992 The American Physical Society.
