High-spin properties of 130Ce have been studied by using the reaction (12C, 6n). The γ-rays following this reaction were detected by six NaI(Tl) detectors in a two-dimensional coincidence arrangement. An experimental γ-ray energy-energy correlation spectrum was extracted from the original coincidence matrix. The matrix of the correlated spectrum shows a valley along the 45° diagonal extending up to Eγ ≈ 1.2 MeV, thus indicating a collective behaviour beyond the region of known discrete lines. From the width of the valley a collective moment of inertia is deduced.
