Three consecutive Coulomb excitation experiments were performed to measure the reduced transition probabilities in Te120,122,124 by using a Ni58 beam. For Te120 the collectivity was remeasured with high precision yielding a B(E2;0g.s.+→21+) value of 0.666 (20) eb22. From the B(E2) values connecting higher-lying states, the nuclear structure of Te120,122,124 was determined and shows a rotational behavior quite in contrast with the vibrational structure of the level schemes. The data are compared with different models.
