Excited states in 78Cu were observed for the first time following the β decay of 78Ni created by in-flight fission of 238U. Based on the coincidence relationships between the observed γ-ray transitions, it was possible to construct a level scheme comprising eight excited states with tentative spin assignments for 5 of them. In addition to the γ-decaying states, an isomeric state with a lifetime of 3.8(4) ms was found to decay by internal conversion.
