The properties of negative-parity states in 114Cd have been studied with the (n, n′ γ) reaction. γ-ray angular distributions and excitation functions have been used to characterize the decays of these excited levels, and level lifetimes have been obtained with the Doppler-shift attenuation method. A set of five closely spaced, negative-parity states has been identified as the complete quadrupole-octupole quintuplet. These excited states and the observed transitions from these levels are compared to calculations performed in the framework of the spdf interacting boson model.
