Levels of 194Ir were studied using neutron capture and (d, p) reaction spectroscopy. A pair spectrometer was used to measure the high-energy γ-ray spectrum from thermal-neutron capture in an enriched 193Ir target over the energy range 4640-6100 keV. From the same reaction, low-energy γ-radiation was studied using curved-crystal spectrometers, and conversion electrons were observed with magnetic spectrometers. Prompt and delayed γγ-coincidences were measured using semiconductor and scintillation detectors. Averaged resonance capture measurements were performed with 2 keV and 24 keV neutrons for primary transitions leading to excitation energies from 0 to 580 keV. Using 22 MeV deuterons, the 193Ir(d, p) high resolution spectra were observed with a magnetic spectrograph. The deduced nuclear level scheme of 194Ir includes 38 levels connected by 184 transitions. Unambiguous spins and parities were determined for 25 levels. The rotor-plus-particle model was used for the interpretation of the level scheme assuming a strong mixing for Nilsson configurations having identical parities and K quantum numbers. IBFFM model calculations were performed and the obtained results were compared with the experimental level scheme.
