Lifetimes of yrast states in Hg180 up to the 8+ state and of the 9− state have been extracted from recoil-decay tagged γ-ray spectra by using the recoil distance Doppler-shift method. In addition, lifetimes of yrast states up to the 10+ state in Hg182 have been extracted from recoil-gated γγ-coincidence spectra. The present study addresses the evolution of collectivity of two competing shapes in neutron-deficient Hg nuclei as a function of A and the configuration mixing at low spin.
