Excited states of 3817Cl21 were populated in binary grazing reactions during the interaction of a beam of 3616S20 ions of energy 215 MeV with a 20882Pb126 target. The combination of the PRISMA magnetic spectrometer and the CLARA γ-ray detector array was used to identify the reaction fragments and to detect their decay via γ-ray emission. A level scheme for 38Cl is presented and discussed within the context of the systematics of neighboring nuclei and is compared with the results of state-of-the-art shell-model calculations.
