The level lifetimes of the and states in have been re-measured employing the – fast-timing technique using fast (Ce) scintillators. Excited states in the nucleus of interest were populated by the fusion-evaporation reaction at a beam energy of 87 MeV provided by the FN Tandem accelerator of the University of Cologne. The lifetime of the state was re-measured with high accuracy to be ps and resolves inconsistencies from previous measurements. Experimental results are compared to theoretical calculations in the framework of the sd-IBM with and without configuration mixing.
