Structure of the neutron-rich Ge isotopes at and around N = 50 has been investigated via intermediate-energy Coulomb excitation using secondary beams of 78-82Ge incident on a Pb target. The B(E2) values for the low-lying 2+ states have been extracted and compared with the data for neighboring isotopes around N = 50. In addition, a new method of intermediate-energy two-step Coulomb excitation has been proposed as a spectroscopic tool to study the 4+ states in neutron-rich even-even nuclei. The first application of the method and its results are presented.
