Shape coexistence in Hg186 and the decay of Tl186
Details of the identification of Tl186 and its decay to Hg186 as investigated with an isotope separator are presented. Conversion electrons, γ, γ-γ, and e-γ studies establish two bands in Hg186; one built on a near-spherical ground state and one on a more strongly deformed shape with a band head at 522 keV. The levels are discussed in the framework of recent theoretical calculations. RADIOACTIVITY Tl186, Tlm186 from Ta181(O16,11n), E=145 MeV; W182(N14,10n), E=168 MeV; mass separated radioactivities.
