Abstract: High-precision energy measurements of the most intense γ-transitions from the decay of 122Sb (“1/2 = 2.72 days) have been performed with a γ-spectrometer. Using this data, the energies of the first excited states and corresponding deexciting γ-rays in 122Sn and 122Te were determined with precision up to a few electron volts.

Keywords: radioactivity, 122Sb, γ-spectra, HPGe-detectors, measurements E(γ), energy of levels.
