No Evidence of Isomerism for the First Excited State of 93Rb
The 253.3-keV excited state located in 93Rb was studied at the Holifield Radioactive Ion Beam Facility in Oak Ridge. This state, described as isomeric in databases, was populated in the decay of 93Kr produced by proton-induced fission of 238U and isolated using the isotope separation on-line technique. We report that the 253.3-keV level does not reveal isomerism and the upper limit of the half-life from our measurement is 4 ns. Our findings are supported by previously reported results that were not taken into account in the latest nuclear databases. © 2014 Elsevier Inc.
