An experiment has been performed to study excited states in the neutron-deficient nucleus Ir175 via the use of the JUROGAM II high-purity germanium detector array and the RITU gas-filled separator at JYFL, Jyväskylä. By using isomer tagging, an isomeric state with a half-life of 6.58(15) μs has been observed in Ir175 for the first time. It has been established that the isomer decays via a 45.2 (E1)-26.1 (M1) keV cascade to new states below the previously reported ground state in Ir175 with Iπ=(5/2-). We now reassign this (5/2-) state to the isomeric state discovered in this study.
