In contrast to earlier measurements reporting a large negative quadrupole moment for the 2+ state in Cd114 near the rotational model value of -0.65e b, new detailed investigations of the reorientation effect in Cd114 yield Q2+=(-0.28±0.09)e b with B(E2;0→2)=(0.513±0.005)e2 b2, or Q2+=(-0.03±0.09)e b with B(E2;0→2)=(0.512±0.005)e2 b2. For Cd110, Q2+=[-(0.420.21)±0.10]e b with B(E2;0→2)=(0.432±0.006)e2 b2.
