Abstract
The neutron-rich isotope Sb-136 has been produced following the relativisti c projectile fission of U-238 in an experiment performed at the Fragment Se parator at GSI, Darmstadt. Delayed gamma -ray spectroscopy of the fission p roducts has been performed after isotope separation. A new isomeric state i n Sb-136 has been populated, and its lifetime measured as T-1/2 = 565(50) n s. Realistic and empirical shell-model calculations have been performed and are compared to the experimental observables.
