High-spin properties of even 118-122Xe isotopes have been studied in experiments when a 118 MeV 12C beam impinged on 114Cd and 116Cd targets. The γ-rays emitted following the reactions were detected by six NaI(Tl) counters. The coincidence events from the counters were sorted into a two-dimensional matrices, from which the energy-correlation spectra were extracted. From the energy correlation spectra the quantities of the collective moment of inertia I(2) are deduced and compared with data obtained for the same nuclei in previous experiments, as well as with results from theoretical studies.
