Chirality in atomic nuclei is a direct consequence of the existence of triaxial nuclear shapes. This phenomenon is known to exist in the A similar to 130 region. We have now observed several pair of bands built upon the negative parity configuration, pi g(9/2)(-1) circle times vh(11/2), in Rh and Tc isotopes in the A similar to 104 region which can be understood in terms of the phenomenon of chiral symmetry breaking. Results of the search for chiral bands in Ag-106 are presented in the current paper.
