Properties of low-spin states in Cd114 have been studied with the (n,n'γ) reaction. Gamma-ray angular distributions and excitation functions have been used to characterize the decays of the excited levels. Level lifetimes have been obtained with the Doppler-shift attenuation method. Sixteen new levels and many new transitions have been suggested below 3.5 MeV in excitation energy. Levels belonging to the phonon multiplets have been proposed based on their decay patterns and collectivity, and the existing intruder structure has been extended. A two-phonon 1ms+ state has been suggested. Excitation of the hexadecapole moment has been considered. Data have been compared with the theoretical calculations of the interacting boson model.
