The atomic nucleus 106Cd was studied via the β-decay of 106In
and using nuclear resonance fluorescence. The decay pattern of five J=1
states and precise lifetimes of three spin 1 states have been deduced. By combining both data sets a candidate for the quadrupole-octupole coupled
1−state was identified at 2825 keV. Only this state shows the decay pattern comparable with the known quadrupole-octupole coupled 1− states in the other even-even stable cadmium isotopes 108−116Cd For the description of this collective state a good agreement with predictions of the
Q-phonon approach using a fermionic configurational space and microscopic calculations on the basis of the random phase approximation was found.
