Background: Excitations with mixed proton-neutron symmetry have been previously observed in the N=52 isotones. Besides the well-established quadrupole mixed-symmetry states (MSS), octupole and hexadecapole MSS have been recently proposed for the nuclei Zr92 and Mo94. Purpose: The heaviest stable N=52 isotone Ru96 was investigated to study the evolution of octupole and hexadecapole MSS with increasing proton number. Methods: Two inelastic proton-scattering experiments on Ru96 were performed to extract branching ratios, multipole mixing ratios, and level lifetimes. From the combined data, absolute transition strengths were calculated. Results: Strong M1 transitions between the lowest-lying 3- and 4+ states were observed, providing evidence for a one-phonon mixed-symmetry character of the 32(-) and 42+ states. Conclusions: sdg-IBM-2 calculations were performed for Ru96. The results are in excellent agreement with the experimental data, pointing out a one-phonon hexadecapole mixed-symmetry character of the 42+ state. The 31-||M1||32(-) matrix element is found to scale with the 2s+||M1||2ms+ matrix element.
