Abstract

To study the decay scheme of {126}Sn, two samples of a purified solution were measured by gamma-ray spectrometry and the relative photon emission intensities were determined. The {126}Sb{m} isomeric branching ratio was derived to be 18.6 (6) %. The maximum beta energy of the {126}Sn decay was checked by liquid scintillation. The K beta/K alpha intensity ratio of Sb was determined being 0.226 (11). These new experimental results were used to re-examine the whole decay scheme of {126}Sn and its daughters.
