We report measurements of the hyperfine structure constants of $$^{131}$$La (N=74) as an initial step to further exploring the neutron deficient rare-earth region where a sudden onset of nuclear deformation is predicted theoretically around N=74. This work is an extension of our earlier off-line experiments on $$^{135,137-139}$$La to on-line laser spectroscopy. The radioactive isotope $$^{131}$$La (T$$_{1/2}$$=59 min) was produced by means of a spallation reaction using a proton beam from TRIUMF cyclotron. The hyperfine spectra were observed by using the method of collinear fast-beam laser spectroscopy. From the obtained hyperfine constants, the nuclear moments of $$^{131}$$La were derived. In order to arrive at an understanding of the nuclear structure of $$^{131}$$La, we have carried out particle triaxial-rotor calculations. The results from the calculation reproduce well the experimental values when a triaxial shape is assumed for $$^{131}$$La.
