Electromagnetic properties of the low-lying states in a $\chem{^{70}Ge}$ nucleus were studied through the multiple Coulomb excitation of a $\chem{^{70}Ge}$ beam with a $^{\rm nat}$Pb target. Relative $\gamma$-ray intensities were measured as a function of emission angle relative to the scattered projectile. Sixteen E2 matrix elements, including diagonal ones, for 6 low-lying states have been determined using the least-squares search code GOSIA. The expectation values $\langle Q^2$ $\rangle$ of 0 1+ and 0 2+ states in $\chem{^{70}Ge}$ are compared with those in $\chem{^{72,74,76}Ge}$. Simple mixing calculations indicate that the 0 2+ states in $\chem{^{70}Ge}$ and $\chem{^{72}Se}$ can be treated as deformed intruder states. It is shown that the deformed intruder becomes the ground state in $\chem{^{74}Kr}$. These interpretations of the 0 2+ states in this region are compared with the potential-energy surface calculations by the Nilsson-Strutinsky model, which allow to interpret the experimental results in a qualitative way from the theoretical point of view.
