Abstract

Abstract Nuclear resonance fluorescence experiments have been performed on the deformed nuclei 156,158,160Gd using 4.1 MeV bremsstrahlung and high-resolution Ge-γ-detectors. Precise excitation energies, reduced transition probabilities and decay branching ratios of numerous new spin-1 states have been extracted from the energies and angular distributions of the scattered photons. The results are compared with electron-scattering data and discussed with respect to the orbital M1 mode and predicted collective E1 excitations.
