      K-shell ionisation cross secions of Cu, Ge, Mo, Ag and Sn in proton impact have been measured systematically in the energy range 0.3 to 1.8 MeV. Thin targets have been used in transmission geometry. Data are compared with the predictions of the PWBA and the PWBA modified to include corrections due to Coulomb retardation of the projectile, increased binding of the target electron during collision and the relativistic nature of theK-shell electrons. The intensity ratiosKα/Kβ have also been obtained as a function of proton energy for all the five elements.

      In-beam nuclear spectroscopic studies of182Re, following the reaction181Ta(α, 3n)182Re have been made using gamma-ray and internal conversion electron techniques.K-conversion coefficients for several transitions have been measured and the multi-polarities of the various transitions assigned. In particular, the spin and parity of the four-quasi-particle isomeric level at 2256 keV were determined to be 16. Theg-factor of this level has been measured to beg = 0·32 ± 0·05. On the basis of theg-factor and the decay pattern of this level, a configuration {v9/2+ [624↑]v7/2 [514↓]v7/2 [503↑]π9/2 [514↑]}kx = 16 has been assigned to this level. The nature of the retardation of the gamma transitions deexciting this level is discussed. It is argued that the measured retardation factors can be explained if the nucleus has a triaxial shape.
