Abstract
Lifetimes of states in a rotational-like M1 band in Cd-110 have been determ ined through a Doppler-shift attenuation method measurement performed with the Gammasphere array. The deduced B(M1) values, which agree well with the predictions of the tilted axis cranking model, clearly confirm that it has the character of a shears band. Using a semiclassical scheme of the couplin g of two long j vectors we deduce information on the strength and form of t he effective interaction between the constituent nucleons. These results an the first definitive evidence of the shears mechanism and "magnetic rotati on" in this mass region. [S0031-9007(99)08994-2].
