Fragments of the g9/2 isobaric analog resonance in 53Mn corresponding to the 3.715 MeV state (Sn=0.57) in 53Cr have been located using the 52Cr(p,p1γ), 52Cr(p,p2γ) and 52Cr(p,γ) 53Mn reactions. Excitation curves were measured in the 4.04-4.35 MeV proton energy region. The excitation function of the (p,p2γ) reaction is a sensitive tool for locating resonances with higher, 5/2≤JR≤13/2 spins and helped to locate the candidates for the g9/2 resonance fragments. Since the (p,γ) channels are relatively strong for this case differential excitation functions for different primary transitions to low lying levels of 53Mn were also measured. The spins of the resonances were found from (p,p1γ), (p,p2γ) and (p,γ) angular distribution measurements.
