The high-spin structure of the nucleus 104Pd was studied through the 96Zr(13C,5n) reaction at incident energies of 51 and 58 MeV, using the Euroball IV γ-ray spectrometer in conjunction with the DIAMANT charged-particle array. Several new medium- and high-spin bands were revealed. The already known positive-parity yrast and the negative-parity cascades were extended up to Ex∼13, ∼11, and ∼9 MeV with Iπ=(26+), Iπ=(23-), and (20-), respectively. The deduced band structures were compared with Woods-Saxon total Routhian surface (TRS) calculations. In addition, non-yrast low-lying positive-parity bands were identified, which were assigned to soft γ-vibrational excitations.
