Lifetimes of the 21+ states in 66,68Ge were measured using the recoil distance Doppler shift method. Excited states in 66Ge and 68Ge were populated using the 58Ni(10B, p2n) and 58Ni(12C, 2p) reactions, respectively. Lifetimes were extracted from coincidence data using the differential decay curve method. The resulting B(E2; 21+→01+) transition strengths are compared with large-scale shell-model calculations.
