Gamma Vibrational Band in 70Ge
The main purpose of this study was to find the odd-spin members of the y vibration band in 70Ge and to extend this band to as high a spin as possible. This focus was chosen, in part, in response to the recent discovery of rigid triaxial deformation at low spin in the y vibrational band in 76Ge. This study focused on building on energy levels in the most recently published 70Ge level scheme that stood out as possible candidates for the foundation of a y vibrational band and on inferring the shape associated with this structure.
