Abstract

The level and decay schemes of the 100Mo transitional nucleus were investigated in the (n, n′γ) reaction induced by reactor fast neutrons. Precise level energies and branching ratios were determined for levels up to 3 MeV. The existence of the 1504.6, 1607.4 and 2201.1 keV states was confirmed and two new levels were introduced with 2286.5 and 2369.6 keV energy, respectively. The 1504.6 keV state was assigned to have spin-parity 0+. The E2/M1 mixing ratio of the 22+→ 21+ transition is suggested as being 3.4+0.5-0.3 which value corresponds to 92% E2 admixture. The positions and decay properties of the lowest-lying levels were compared with the predictions of the neutron-proton interacting boson model with configuration mixing.
