Abstract
The atomic nucleus 74Kr has been investigated using combined conversion-electron (CE) and $\gamma$-ray spectroscopy. In order to confirm the existence of the expected low-lying isomeric 0+2 state, the possibility of an electric-monopole (E0) decay to the ground state was examined. The observation of an E0 transition at 508 keV allowed the determination of the mixing between coexisting prolate and oblate shapes.
