Title: {beta} decay of {sup 32}Na

Abstract

The {beta}-decay of {sup 32}Na has been studied using {beta}-{gamma} coincidences. New transitions and levels are tentatively placed in the level scheme of {sup 32}Mg from an analysis of {gamma}-{gamma} and {beta}-{gamma}-{gamma} coincidences. The observation of the indirect feeding of the 2321 keV state in {sup 32}Mg removes some restrictions previously placed on the spin assignment for this state. No evidence of a state at 2117 keV in {sup 32}Mg is found. Previously unobserved weak transitions up to 5.4 MeV were recorded but could not be placed in the decay scheme of {sup 32}Na.
