Gamma rays in the Sb-132 and Te-133 N = 81 isotones near doubly magic Sn-13
2 have been studied at Gammasphere using a Cm-248 fission source. Previousl
y unknown yrast cascades in the two nuclei were identified in cross coincid
ence with known gamma rays from complementary Rh and Ru fission fragments.
The Sb-132 levels are explained as proton-neutron hole states as well as co
re excited states of 2p-2h character, while the interpretation of the Te-13
3 level scheme is mainly based on results of shell model calculations using
empirical proton-proton interaction energies from Te-134 together with est
imated proton-neutron hole interactions.
