Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The lifetimes of states in the lowest lying positive parity band in Cd were measured. The Doppler shift attenuation method was used. It was suggested that the structure has the character of a shear-type band resulting from the coupling of g proton holes to aligned pairs of h and g neutron particles.
