Abstract.

Excited states of 110Cd were studied with conversion electron spectroscopy following the \( \beta^{+}/EC\) decay of 110In. Internal conversion coefficients from K-shell electrons are extracted from \(\gamma\)-\( e^{-}\) coincidences and compared with expected values for E1, M1, and E2 transitions, allowing the assignment of the transition multipolarities. The \( \alpha_{K}\) values for transitions connecting the \( 4^{+}\) and \( 6^{+}\) members of the deformed intruder band and the ground-state band show evidence for E0 components. The extracted \( \rho^{2}(E0)\cdot 10^{3}\) value for the \( 4^{+}_{3}\rightarrow 4^{+}_{1}\) 708 keV transition is determined to be \( 106^{+98}_{-91}\).
