Title: In 124 levels populated in the β decay of Cd 124

Abstract

In this paper, the $${\beta}$$ decay of $$^{124}\mathrm{Cd}$$ into levels in $$^{124}\mathrm{In}$$ was reinvestigated at the Holifield Radioactive Ion Beam Facility. Fifty-MeV protons were bombarded on uranium targets and the induced fission products were mass separated and deposited on a moving tape in the center of an array of $${\gamma}$$ detectors. The resulting $${\gamma}{-}{\gamma}$$ coincidences revealed appreciable disagreement with previous work and has resulted in a revised ordering of the low-energy states in $$^{124}\mathrm{In}$$. Finally, the resulting partial decay scheme has four energy levels, three of which are new.
