Abstract

Abstract Nuclear excitation by electron transition (NEET) was studied on 189Os by photoionization of the atomic K shell. The radioactivity of the 6 hr isomer observed after irradiation with bremsstrahlung produced by 200 keV electrons is ascribed to the excitation of the 70 keV level induced by the KX (X = M 4, M 5, M 1, etc.) electronic transitions through the electromagnetic interaction between the nucleus and orbital electrons.
