Â© 2017 American Physical Society. The properties of excited states in the neutron-rich nucleus Os194 have been investigated using the Os192(O18,O16)Os194 reaction with an 80 MeV beam provided by the IFIN-HH Laboratory, Bucharest. Discrete Î³-ray decays from excited states have been measured using the hybrid HPGe-LaBr3(Ce) array RoSPHERE. The current work identifies a number of previously unreported low-lying nonyrast states in Os194 as well as the first measurement of the half-life of the yrast 2+ state of 302(50) ps. This is equivalent to a B(E2:2+â†’0+)=45(16) W.u. and intrinsic quadrupole deformation of Î²eff=0.14(1). The experimental results are compared with Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov-interacting-boson-model calculations and are consistent with a reduction in a quadrupole collectivity in Os isotopes with increasing neutron number.
