Abstract
Excited states have been observed for the first time in (XPt)-X-168 and Pt- 170 using the alpha-decay recoil-tagging technique. The trend of decreasing deformation moving away from the N = 104 mid-shell continues far Pt-170 bu t the structure of Pt-168 is significantly different. The low spin level en ergy systematics in Pt168-184 are presented and discussed within the framew ork of the interacting boson model. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science B.V. All righ ts reserved.
