A detailed alpha-decay study of the neutron-deficient isotope Pb-181 has been performed in the complete fusion reaction Ca-40+Sm-144 -> Pb-184(*) at the velocity filter SHIP (GSI, Darmstadt). In comparison with the literature, more precise data have been deduced for the I-pi=(9/2(-)) ground state in this nucleus, which is presumably based on the neutron nu h(9/2) spherical orbital. Improved alpha-decay data were also measured for Pb-180.
