Abstract
Lifetimes of high-spin states in the N=52-54 Ru nuclei have been investigat ed via the Cu-65(S-36, pyn) Ru-96,Ru-97,Ru-98 (y = 4,3,2) reactions using t he recoil-distance Doppler-shift technique. The data were collected in coin cidence mode. Lifetimes have been extracted for both the positive- and the negative-parity states in Ru-96 and Ru-98 and for the positive-parity state s in Ru-97. The levels studied have lifetimes in the range 2-31 ps. The obs erved reduced transition probabilities B(E2) and B(M1) are compared with th e predictions of the shell model. Theoretical implications of these results are discussed.
