Deep-inelastic collisions of 136Xe ions with tantalum and tungsten targets have been used to study-decays and high-spin isomers in neutron-rich A 180 nuclei at the GSI on-line mass separator. Reaction products were extracted from the thermal ion source (TIS), accelerated to 55 keV, mass separated with a dipole magnet, and transported to a = counting station. The implanted activity was periodically removed, with periods 160 s, 1600 s and 16000 s. Electron-gamma coincident events were written to magnetic tape in list mode, so that they could be analysed with respect to the half-lives invloved. Gamma-rays associated with the decay of the well known K = 37; 177, 51.4 min isomer in Hf were observed 2 with an unexpectedly high yield as shown in Fig. 1. Atwo component grow-in analysis for the observed decays from the K = 37; 177 isomer in Hf gives a rst com-2 ponent of6 +
