The properties of the low-lying energy states for the 100Mo isotope is investigated within the framework of the proton-neutron interacting model IBM2. By considering the relative energy of the d proton boson to be different from that of the neutron boson and taking into account the dipole interacting among like-boson \(\hat L_\pi \cdot \hat L_\pi \) and \(\hat L_\nu \cdot \hat L_\nu \), the low-lying energy spectrum is reproduced well. Particularly, the relative position of the energies for 2 1 + , 0 2 + , 2 2 + and 4 1 + states shifted correctly fit the experimental data. The electromagnetic properties, including the key observable B(E2) reduced transition branching ratios and the E2 reduced matrix elements of the experimental data, are well described. Our calculations show possible shape coexistence in the 100Mo nucleus.
