We report on g-factor measurements of the 19/2+ T1/2=4.5(3) μs isomer in 127Sn and the 10+ T1/2=2.69(23) μs isomer in 128Sn. These isomers were produced and spin-aligned in relativistic heavy-ion fragmentation at GSI and were selected and separated by the GSI fragment separator (FRS). The γ-rays of the isomeric decay were detected by the RISING γ-ray spectrometer. The method of time-differential perturbed angular distributions was utilized. The measured g-factors, g(19/2+; 127Sn)=− 0.17(2) and g(10+; 128Sn)=− 0.20(4), are compared with shell model calculations. The measured g-factors confirm the predominantly νh11/2− 2 and ν(s1/2− 1h11/2−2) character of the 10+ and 19/2− isomers in 128Sn and 127Sn, respectively. The results demonstrate the feasibility of the method for similar measurements in exotic neutron-rich nuclei.
