Abstract : The decay of the Ag102 isomers has been investigated using magnetic lens, scintillation, and solid state spectrometers. Half-lives of (13 = 0.4) and (7.7 = 0.5) min were assigned to the 5+ and 2+ spin isomers, respectively. Beta rays of 4.80-, 4.06-, 3.37-, 3.07-, 2.26-, 1.90-, 1.50-, 1.00-, and 0.65- MeV end-points and gamma rays of 0.558, 0.727, 0.853, 1.01, 1.28, 1.60, 1.80, 2.07, 2.79, and 3.33 were observed, and a large amount of Kcapture was found. The isomeric transition proceeds by means of the internal conversion process. On the basis of gamma-gamma, gamma-gamma-gamma, beta-gamma, and x-ray-gamma coincidences, the level scheme was proposed. With the information from the internal conversion coefficient data, the isomeric transition, and coincidence measurements, spin and parity assignments have been possible. (Author)
