Levels of 186Re have been studied in the thermal neutron capture reaction with an enriched 185Re target. Evaluation of spectrum measured with GAMS5 allowed to obtain energies and intensities of more than 500 γ-lines assigned to 186Re. Most of the obtained transitions have been placed in the model-independent level scheme of the doubly odd 186Re nucleus, taking into account the available data of earlier experiments as well as the results of recent 187Re(p, d)186Re reaction measurements. Structure of the 186Re low-lying levels has been analysed in terms of the particle-plus-rotor coupling model.
