The first experimental information about excited states in the N=Z+1 nucleus Pd-93 is presented. The experiment was performed using a 205 MeV Ni-58 beam from the Vivitron accelerator at IReS, Strasbourg, impinging on a bismuth-backed Ca-40 target. Gamma-rays, neutrons and charged particles emitted in the reactions were detected using the Ge detector array Euroball, the Neutron Wall liquid-scintillator array and the Euclides Si charged-particle detector system. The experimental level scheme is compared with the results of new shell model calculations which predict a coupling scheme with aligned neutron-proton pairs to greatly influence the level structure of Napproximate toZ nuclei at low excitation energies.
