The radioactive isotope 107Sn was studied using Coulomb excitation at the REX-ISOLDE facility at CERN. This is the lightest odd-Sn nucleus examined using this technique. The reduced transition probability of the lowest-lying \ensuremath3/2+\ensuremath3/2+ state was measured and is compared to shell-model predictions based on several sets of single-neutron energies relative to 100Sn . Similar to the transition probabilities for the \ensuremath2+\ensuremath2+ states in the neutron-deficient even-even Sn nuclei, the measured value is underestimated by shell-model calculations. Part of the strength may be recovered by considering the ordering of the \ensuremathd5/2\ensuremathd5/2 and \ensuremathg7/2\ensuremathg7/2 single-neutron states.
