Abstract : The decay of 140Pr was investigated by means of a Ge(Li) spectrometer. Excited states of 140Ce at 1,596.2, 1,903.1, 2,348.9, 2,522.5, 3,016.8 and 3,119.6 keV are fed in the beta decay of 140Pr. Spin and parity assignments for all observed levels have been made from electron capture and position disintegration considerations and gamma branches. The experimental level scheme of 140Ce is compared with the results of shell model calculations for N=82 nuclei. (Author)
