Since the introduction of chirality in nuclei, the search for chiral candidates in different mass regions has been a hot topic for about two decades. At iThemba LABS, a new chiral symmetry region, the thallium isotopes with mass A ≥ 90 was found. Candidate chiral bands were suggested in 198Tl and then in 194Tl. Most importantly, a comparison of the properties in the chiral partner bands in 194Tl showed that this nucleus is one of the best chiral candidates to date. A search for chiral symmetry in the neighboring thallium isotopes was undertaken. The results from a y-ray spectroscopy study in 193Tl performed at iThemba LABS, South Africa, are discussed.
