Excited states and decay properties of Pt-175 have been investigated using the Mo-92(Sr-86, 2pn) fusion-evaporation reaction. The JUROGAM I gamma-ray spectrometer and the GREAT spectrometer were used in conjunction with the gas-filled recoil separator RITU for the measurement of the radiation at the target and focal plane positions, respectively. Two new band structures, assigned to be based on the I-pi = (7/2(-)) ground state in Pt-175, have been established and the known yrast band has been extended up to I-pi = (49/2(+)). Rotational properties of the excited states in Pt-175 have been investigated within the cranked shell-model formalism. The low-frequency changes in the alignments of the positive-and negative-parity bands are interpreted as a sign of proton-pair excitations in the rotating core. Furthermore, the alpha-decay measurements reveal a candidate for a fourth alpha-decay branch in Pt-175, feeding a non-yrast state in Os-171.
