Excited states of the nucleus 102Ru have been studied using the 96Zr(10B, p3n) reaction at a beam energy of 42 MeV. The emitted γ rays were detected with the Gammasphere spectrometer. The known positive-parity structure built on the second 2+ state was extended up to the 10+ and 11+ states. This structure has been interpreted as a quasi-γ band. Its energy staggering as a function of spin has been analyzed in order to derive information on the type of triaxiality present in 102Ru, a nucleus that serves as one of the cores for chiral structures in the mass A ≈ 100 region.
