Abstract

Multinucleon transfer reactions between Er170 ions and Wnat targets with on-line mass separation were used to produce neutron-rich A=168 isotopes. and spectroscopy was used to study the decay of these activities. A new isomer of holmium, Hom168, was identified to decay by an isomeric transition with a half-life of 132(4) s. A decay scheme for the most neutron-rich A=168 isotope, 8.8(3)-min Dy168, was determined. Also, a new Q- value of 2.93(3) MeV for the decay of 3.0-min Hog168 has been obtained.
