High-spin states in Pb-202 and Pb-203 hare been investigated by in-beam gam
ma -ray spectroscopy following the reaction Pt-198(Be-9,xn). A search for m
agnetic rotational bands in these isotopes confirmed one of the two bands p
reviously assigned to Pb-202 and revealed a new band in this isotope. No ev
idence for magnetic rotation has been found in Pb-203.
