An upper limit of 0.16% (one standard deviation) is placed on the γ-ray branching ratio for the ΔT=2 transition from the T=2, 0+ level at 9338 ± 2 keV in Ti44 to the first excited 2+ level at 1083 keV. A new determination of ΓαΓγΓ for the T=2 level gives 0.24 eV. The upper limit for the ΔT=2 transition is shown to be consistent with shell-model estimates of isospin mixing.

NUCLEAR STRUCTURE 0+, T=2 level Ti44; measured γ decay, ωγ; deduced B(E2) upper limit for ΔT=2; calculated B(E2).
