The low-lying dipole-strength of 142Ce is investigated with the nuclear resonance fluorescence (NRF) method at the Darmstadt High Intensity Photon Setup (DHIPS) using bremsstrahlung with an endpoint energy of 7.35 MeV. Nuclei are excited by γ-rays from the ground state to predominantly J=1 states and with a lower probability to J=2 states. Afterwards, they decay via photonemission to another low-lying excited state or directly to the ground state. Due to the angular correlation of the incident photon beam and the emitted γ quanta, one is able to assign a certain multipolarity to each transition and the transition strength can be determined.
The dipole response of 142Ce will be presented and discussed regarding its evolution near the closed N=82 shell.
