Abstract

Evidence is presented for the occurrence of a 52± parity doublet as the ground state of Pa229, in agreement with a previous theoretical prediction. The doublet splitting energy is measured to be 0.22±0.05 keV. The relation of this doublet to ground-state octupole deformation is discussed.
