The 192Hg nucleus has been produced via the 36S(160Gd, 4n) reaction at a beam energy of 159 MeV. The γ-rays have been detected with the multi-detector array EUROGAM phase 1. The level scheme has been extended up to 10.4 MeV excitation energy and spin 34. Two new structures, composed of competing ΔI = 1 and ΔI = 2 transitions, have been observed and, for the first time in Mercury isotopes, some links with the previously known low-lying states have been established. These experimental results are discussed in terms of mean-field Hartree-Fock plus BCS calculations and the new bands are proposed to originate from deformation-aligned quasi-proton excitations. π(i13/2 * h9/2)kπ=11 and π(h9/2)2kπ=8+ coupled to rotation-aligned quasi-neutrons v(i13/2)n and quasi-proton π(h11/2)2 excitations.
