Excited states of the Cu64(Z=29,N=35) nucleus have been probed using heavy-ion-induced fusion evaporation reaction and an array of Compton-suppressed Clovers as detection system for the emitted γ rays. More than 50 new transitions have been identified and the level scheme of the nucleus has been established up to an excitation energy Ex∼6 MeV and spin ∼10. The experimental results have been compared with those from large-basis shell-model calculations that facilitated an understanding of the single-particle configurations underlying the level structure of the nucleus.
