# Low-energy Coulomb excitation of $^{62}$Fe and $^{62}$Mn following in-beam decay of $^{62}$Mn

Abstract : Sub-barrier Coulomb-excitation was performed on a mixed beam of $^{62}$Mn and $^{62}$Fe, following in-trap $\beta^{-}$ decay of $^{62}$Mn at REX-ISOLDE, CERN. The trapping and charge breeding times were varied in order to alter the composition of the beam, which was measured by means of an ionisation chamber at the zero-angle position of the Miniball array. A new transition was observed at 418 keV, which has been tentatively associated to a $2^{(+)},3^{(+)}\rightarrow1^{+}_{g.s.}$ transition. This fixes the relative positions of the $\beta$-decaying $4^{(+)}$ and $1^{+}$ states in $^{62}$Mn for the first time. Population of the $2^{+}_{1}$ state was observed in $^{62}$Fe and the cross-section determined by normalisation to the $^{109}$Ag target excitation. Combining this Coulomb-excitation cross-section with previously measured lifetimes of the $2^{+}_{1}$ state, the spectroscopic quadrupole moment, $Q_{s}(2^{+}_{1})$, is extracted, albeit with a large uncertainty.
