The neutron-deficient nuclides 182,183Pb were produced at the Accelerator Laboratory of the University of Jyv¨askyl¨a by bombarding a 107Ag target with 78Kr ions. The nuclei of interest were separated using the ritu gas-filled separator and their radioactive decays investigated using the great spectrometer. Correlating the α decays of these Pb isotopes with those of their respective Hg daughters allowed α-decay
branching ratios of bα(178Hg) = 89(4)% and bα(179Hg) = 75(4)% to be deduced.
