The -delayed spectroscopy of As has been performed using a purified beam of Ge ground state at the Ion Guide Isotope Separator On-Line facility (IGISOL). The Ge ions were produced using proton-induced fission of Th and selected with the double Penning trap JYFLTRAP for the post-trap decay spectroscopy measurements. The low-spin isomeric-state ions were not observed in the fission products. The intrinsic half-life of the Ge ground state has been determined as , which is significantly shorter than the literature value. A new level scheme of As has been built and is compared to shell-model calculations.
