Nuclear structure and decay of the isotope $$^{253}$$No and its decay products $$^{249}$$Fm and $$^{253}$$Md were investigated by means of $$alpha$$-$$gamma$$ spectroscopy. Besides the established strong $$alpha$$ transitions from the 9/2$$^{-}$$[734] Nilsson level in $$^{249}$$Fm, populated predominantly by the $$alpha$$ decay of $$^{253}$$No, into the ground-state(gs) rotational band, a couple of weaker $$alpha$$ lines were observed and placed into the $$^{249}$$Fm level scheme. The transition from the 7/2$$^{-}$$ level in $$^{249}$$Es, populated by the $$alpha$$ decay of $$^{253}$$Md, into the 9/2$$^{+}$$ member of the gs rotational band, so far established for other odd-mass Es isotopes, was observed clearly. The GEANT4 simulations were performed to investigate the influence of energy summing between $$alpha$$ particles and conversion electrons (CE) on the shape of the $$alpha$$ spectra at different implantation energies, leading to evidence for a weak $$alpha$$ decay branch of $$^{253}$$No into the gs of $$^{249}$$Fm or the ground-state rotational band, respectively.
