Excited states of 103Cd were studied in the reaction 58Ni(50Cr,4pn) 103Cd. The NORDBALL array with neutron and charged particle detectors was employed for the detection of γ rays and light evaporated particles. The level scheme of 103Cd was significantly extended. A strong cascade of E2 transitions connecting negative parity states was found. Shell model calculations were performed and positive parity excited states were interpreted in terms of neutron-particle and proton-hole excitations with respect to the doubly magic N = Z = 50 core. The negative parity band was well reproduced by the total routhian surface calculations.
