Description

The A$\approx$100 region is a diverse region of the nuclear chart with the occurrence of different nuclear structure phenomena. For example the well known sudden onset of collectivity in the neutron-rich Sr and Zr isotopes [1,2], the multiple shape coexistence in the neutron-rich stable Cd isotopes [3,4] or the evidences for $\gamma$-softness in the Mo, Ru and Pd isotopes. Lifetimes of excited states in $^{98}$Zr, $^{102}$Mo and $^{112}$Pd were measured using the ($^{18}$O, $^{16}$O) two neutron transfer reaction in combination with the Plunger device at the Cologne FN Tandem accelerator [5.9]. In this reaction, a low amount of momentum and energy is transferred, making it a powerful tool for the investigation of nuclear structures dominating at low energies. This allows a detailed analysis of the shape coexistence phenomena in the Zr and Mo isotopes occurring at the transition from $N=58$ to $N=60$ [6,8] and the nuclear structure related to the $\gamma$-deformation in neutron-rich Mo and Pd isotopes [7,8]. The latter were compared to the interacting boson model (IBM), the Jean-Wilets $\gamma$-soft model and the Davydov-Filippov rigid triaxial rotor model.
