Abstract

It was revealed at iThemba LABS that chiral symmetry can develop in the thallium isotopes with mass A ~ 190. In order to search for chiral candidates in these isotopes, γ-spectroscopy measurements on 192Tl were performed at iThemba LABS, using a heavy-ion reaction of 160Gd(37Cl, 4n) at 167 MeV beam energy and a thin target of 1.0 mg/cm2. Previous level scheme of 192Tl was considerably extended. Spins and parities were assigned to most of the levels and relative intensities of γ-ray transitions were measured. Most important is that a weak band that is suggested as a possible chiral partner to the yrast band was discovered. Both bands are built on πh9/2×νi13/2 configuration. More details on these new results will be presented.
