Abstract: The Coulomb excitation experiment to study electromagnetic properties of the heaviest stable Mo isotope, 100Mo, was performed using a 76 MeV 32S beam from the Warsaw cyclotron U-200P. Magnitudes and relative signs of 26 E1, E2, E3, and M1 matrix elements coupling nine low-lying states in 100Mo were determined using the least-squares code GOSIA. Diagonal matrix elements (related to the spectroscopic quadrupole moments) of the 2+_1, 2+_2 and 2+_3 states as well as the 4+_1 state were extracted. The resulting set of reduced E2 matrix elements was complete and precise enough to obtain, using the quadrupole sum rules approach, quadrupole deformation parameters of 100Mo in its two lowest 0+ states: ground and excited. The overall deformation of the 0+_1 and 0+_2 states in 100Mo is of similar magnitude, in both cases larger compared to what was found for the neighboring isotopes 96Mo and 98Mo. At the same time, the asymmetry parameters obtained for both states strongly differ, indicating a triaxial shape of the 100Mo nucleus in the ground state and a prolate shape in the excited 0+ state. Low-energy quadrupole excitations of the 100Mo nucleus were studied in the frame of the general quadrupole collective Bohr Hamiltonian model (GBH). The potential energy and inertial functions were calculated using the adiabatic time-dependent Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov (ATDHFB) method starting from two possible variants of the Skyrme effective interaction: SIII and Sly4. The overall quadrupole deformation parameters resulting from the GBH calculations with the SLy4 variant of the Skyrme interaction are slightly closer to the experimentally obtained values than those obtained using SIII
