For a complete description of vibrational structure in nuclei, one should expect to observe multi-phonon (at least two and threephonon) excitations. Recent measurements on the low-lying level structures of Cd [1] and Ni [2] isotopes, which had long been considered
to be the best examples of spherical vibrators, are suggestive of serious deviation from the expected vibrational picture for the two- and three-phonon states. As a part of our continuing effort to search for the possible existence of multi-phonon vibrational structure, it is interesting to investigate the level structure of the Pd nuclei. With the aim of obtaining a comprehensive picture of the properties of low-spin levels in 106Pd, a series of γ-ray spectroscopic experiments has been performed with the (n,n ′γ) reaction.
