Paper Abstract

Conversion electrons from the decay of low-lying levels of 237Np have been measured to detect the population of these levels by 2i/ gamma-ray decay of the Np shape isomer. Analysis of the 208-keV transition L conversion-electron peak _gives an upper limi3J?f about 17 pb for the population of the 3/2 267-keV level in Np from the shape isomer decay. Model calculations are compared with the measured limit. Improvements are suggested for this experiment.
