Lifetimes of the low-lying excited states in the very neutron-deficient nucleus
175Au have been measured by the recoil-distance Doppler-shift method using
γ-ray spectra obtained with the recoil-decay tagging technique. Transition quadrupole moments and reduced transition probabilities extracted for this odd-
Z nucleus indicate the existence of three different shapes and the competition between collective and noncollective structures
