In-beam γ-ray spectroscopy of nuclei in the vicinity of 78Ni was performed at Radioactive Isotope Beam Factory (RIBF), RIKEN. De-excitation γ rays were detected in coincidence with the reaction residues, including the N = 50 nucleus 80Zn, produced by secondary reactions of radioactive isotopes. The analysis is in progress to study the low-lying excited states in 80Zn.
