Abstract: Conversion-line and γ-ray intensities from the decay of 175Hf (T1/2 = 70 days) have been measured with π√2 magnetic β-spectrometer and two coaxial HPGe-detectors. The values of the internal conversion coefficient αK and penetration parameter λ for intraband magnetic dipole transitions γ114 and γ138 keV in 175Lu were determined.

Keywords: radioactivity, 175Hf, HPGe-detectors, magnetic spectrometer, measurements I(γ), I(ce), internal conversion, penetration parameter.
