Title: Experimental study of {sup 113}Cd {beta} decay using CdZnTe detectors

Abstract

A search for the fourfold forbidden {beta} decay of {sup 113}Cd has been performed with CdZnTe semiconductors. With 0.86 kg {center_dot} d of statistics a half-life for the decay of T{sub 1/2}=[8.2{+-}0.2(stat.){sub -1.0}{sup +0.2}(sys.)]x10{sup 15} yr has been obtained. This is in good agreement with published values. A comparison of the spectral shape with the one given on the Table of Isotopes Web page shows a severe deviation.
