β-delayed γ-ray measurements have been part of an experimental program at the NSCL to understand the role of the πf7/2 - νf5/2 proton-neutron monopole interaction in neutron-rich pf-shell nuclei above 48Ca. Central to this study has been an attempt to observe the development of new shell structure at N 32, 34 through the systematic observation of E(2+1 ) as a function of neutron number. Additionally, the ground state spin and parity of odd-odd and odd-A nuclei were interpreted in an extreme single-particle model to follow the monopole migration of the νf5/2 as protons are removed from the πf7/2state.
