Beta and gamma rays from the decay of Br83 to the Kr83 metastable level were investigated using scintillation spectrometers. An 0.530 MeV gamma-ray following the emission of a beta-ray of maximum energy 0.395±0.030 MeV was observed, as well as a beta-ray of maximum energy 0.925±0.015 MeV. No evidence of other gamma rays was found. The branching ratios of the two beta groups were determined to be 0.014 and 0.986, respectively. The half-life of Br83 was measured and found to be 2.39±0.03 h.
