The origin and decay properties of levels in 114Cd, with special emphasis on the quintuplet of states around 1.2 MeV excitation energy, are invesigated both theoretically and experimentally. An almost complete set of reduced transition probabilities B(E0) and B(E2) is established by means of (n, γ) and (n, e-) spectroscopy. Cofiguration mixing between vibrational-like and rotational-like states, extracted from proton two-particle-two-hole (2p-2h) core coupling calculations, is found to be crucial for explaining the peculiar level properties.
