The angular distributions of states excited in the reaction 94Mo(p,t)92Mo at Ep = 40 MeV are measured. Values of the angular momentum transfers L and the spectroscopic enhancement factors are extracted by means of a zero-range DWBA calculation. Several new Jπ assignments are made. The strongly excited states are attributed to 1p-1h and 2p-2h neutron states. Lower-lying proton configuration states are weakly excited. Good agreement is obtained with a calculation which describes the excitation of these proton states through particular components in the 94Mo g.s. wave function. The long predicted 0+ state in 92Mo at 2.5 MeV is identified. A 0+ pairing vibrational state has been located at 3.85 MeV. The possible existence of 2+, 4+, 3- and 5- pairing vibrational states is discussed.
