Abstract

Measurements of prompt gamma-rays, following neutron capture in (107)Ag and (109)Ag have been performed at the GELINA facility in the resonance energy region up to about 1keV. From the intensities of low and high energy gamma-rays the spins of 53 (107)Ag and 78 (109)Ag s- and p-wave resonance have been assigned. These spectroscopic quantities are important for the interpretation of data from parity violation experiments performed by the TRIPLE Collaboration. The intensities of low-energy transitions showed a dependence not only on the spin of the resonance but also in its parity. This effect allows the assignment of the parity of the resonance and may open new perspectives in the study of the gamma-decay of the compound nucleus.
