The most significant results of this investigation are embodied in the proposed decay scheme. Previous research has failed to produce data sufficient for the purpose. The use of enriched target materials made possible production of pure activities. Study of the gammaray spectra not only clarified energy transitions with the assignment of eight new gamma rays, but also produced the first determinations of relative transition intensities and of gamm-ray coincidences. Heretofore, no report has been made of the application of modern methods of nuclear spectroscopy to the activity of cadmium 105. The nature of the decay with both intense high-energy gamma rays and positrons presented unusual experimental problems which have been thoroughly described. The completed work provides a sound basis for further study of the neutrondeficient isotopes of cadmium. Author
