Abstract:

Previous work has shown that the spin of the 2750-keV level in potassium-37 is either 32 or 52. To resolve the ambiguity, two experiments were carried out. The linear polarization of the ground-state gamma ray from the 2750-keV level was measured. The weak cascade from the 2750-keV level through the doublet near 1.37 MeV was shown to involve the 1380-keV level. These results exclude a spin of 32 for the 2750-keV level, and the spin is established to be 52. Author
