The nature of low-lying excitations, Kπ=0+ bands in deformed nuclei remain enigmatic in the field, especially in relationship to quadrupole vibrations. One method of characterizing these states beyond excitation energies is through measurements of absolute transition probabilities. In the rare earth region of deformation, there are five stable Gd isotopes, 154Gd, 156Gd, and 158Gd have been studied to obtain B(E2) values, a fourth, 160Gd is the focus of this work. We have examined 160Gd with the (n, n′γ) reaction and neutron energies up to 3.0 MeV to confirm known 0+ states.
