The decays of Mn have been measured at the RIBF facility at RIKEN using the EURICA spectrometer combined with an active stopper consisting of a stack of Si detectors. Half-lives and -delayed neutron emission probabilities have been extracted for these decays, together with first experimental information on excited states populated in Fe. The data indicate a continuously increasing deformation for Fe isotopes up to A=70, and interpreted to be due to the interplay between quadrupole correlation of specific neutron orbitals and the monopole component of the proton-neutron interaction.
