A novel technique with a radioactive isotope beam has been employed for in-beam γ-ray spectroscopy of a very neutron-rich isotope 34Mg. The excited 34Mg were produced by the projectile fragmentation reaction induced by a radioactive 36Si beam at 50n MeV/nucleon on a 385 mg/cm2 9Be target. Deexcitation γ rays were detected in coincidence with the 34Mg fragments. The measured excitation energy, 660 ± 10 keV, implies a large deformation of 34Mg.
