Excitations in Po-192 have been studied via in-beam gamma-ray spectroscopy following the Er-164 + 164 MeV S-32 reaction. The experiment was performed at the ATLAS facility using ten Compton-suppressed Ge detectors and the Fragment Mass Analyzer. The alpha decay of Po-192 has been used to identify prompt gamma-ray transitions by means of the recoil decay tagging technique. The first three excited states of Po-192 were established. The particle-core model has been successfully used to model these excitations and the quasiparticle random phase approximation has been applied to extract microscopic wave functions of the 2(1)(+) states.
