A new β+/EC branch of 0. 11 ± 0. 02 % from the (7) + isomer of 124Cs was identified in a measurement of the decay of 124Cs using the 8 π spectrometer at TRIUMF. Combinations of γ-γ, γ-e-, and e--e- coincidence data were used to further investigate the isomeric decay. Six new transitions were observed and their branching ratios were measured.
