N2 - The fast timing ???(t) method has been used to measure lifetimes of the low-lying levels in Th-231 populated in the ?- decay of Ac-231. The half-life of the K-? = 5/2(-) band-head at 185.7-keV was measured as T(1/2) = 1073(79) ps, yielding D-0 = 1.76(8) x 10(-2) e·fm and 1.65(6) x 10(-2) e·fm for the El transitions to the 7/2(+) and 5/2(+) members respectively of the K-? = 5/2(+) ground state band. Furthermore, T(1/2) ? 74 ps and ? 74 ps were measured for the K-? = 3/2(+) and 1/2(+) bandheads at 221.4- and 247.6-keV, and T-1/2 = 503(12) ps and 98(36) ps for the 1/2(-) and 3/2(-) states at 554.7- and 593.6-keV, members of the K-? = 1/2(-) band. The latter results consistently yield D(0) values of the order of 1.1 x 10-2 e·fm for three transitions connecting the K-? = 1/2(±) bands. The observed transition rates have been interpreted within the quasiparticle-phonon model with the inclusion of Coriolis coupling.
