Excited states of 1738Cl21 were populated in binary grazing reactions during the interaction of a beam of 1636S20 ions of energy 215 MeV with a 82208Pb126 target. The combination of the PRISMA magnetic spectrometer and the CLARA γ-ray detector array was used to identify the reaction fragments and to detect their decay via γ-ray emission. A level scheme for Cl38 is presented and discussed within the context of the systematics of neighboring nuclei and is compared with the results of state-of-the-art shell-model calculations.
