## Abstract

The Hg-192 nucleus has been produced via the S-36(Gd-160, 4n) reaction at a beam energy of 159 MeV. The gamma-rays have been detected with the multidetector array EUROGAM phase 1. The level scheme has been extended up to 10.4MeV excitation energy and spin 34. Two new structures, composed of competing Delta I = 1 and Delta I = 2 transitions, have been observed and, for the first time in Mercury isotopes, some links with the previously known low-lying states have been established. These experimental results are discussed in terms of mean-field Hartree-Fock plus BCS calculations and the new bands are proposed to originate from deformation-aligned quasi-proton excitations. pi(i(13/2)*h(9/2))(K pi=11) and pi(h(9/2))(k pi=8+)(2) coupled to rotation-aligned quasi-neutrons nu(i(13/2))(n) and quasi-proton pi(h(11/2))(2) excitations.
