High spin states in Ge-70 nucleus have been studied in two different experi
ments using heavy ion fusion evaporation reaction. The Gamma Detector Array
comprising of eight Compton-suppressed High Purity Ge detectors, was used
in conjunction with a Recoil Mass Spectrometer - the HIRA - in order to ide
ntify and measure the transitions of this weakly populated nucleus. The lev
el scheme is extended up to an excitation energy of 13 MeV for spin-parity
21(-) with several newly observed transitions placed in it. A rotational li
ke band is also observed in this nucleus for the first time.
