Shape coexistence was established in the Sn and Cd nuclei, and in the odd mass In and Sb nuclei, some time ago but firm evidence has been lacking for its presence at low spin in the Te nuclei. However, strong circumstantial evidence exists, and recent highly-sensitive γ-ray spectroscopic studies have observed transitions for candidate rotational 2+ band members in 122Te and 124Te.
