Excited states in the nuclei 38,40,42 Si have been studied using in-beam Γ-ray spectroscopy following multi-nucleon removal reactions to investigate the systematics of excitation energies along the Z=14 isotopic chain. The most probable candidates for the transition from the yrast 4 + state were tentatively assigned among several γ lines newly observed in the present study. The energy ratios between the 21 + and 41+ states were obtained to be 2.09(5), 2.56(5) and 2.93(5) for 38,40,42Si, respectively, indicating a rapid development of deformation in Si isotopes from N=24 to, at least, N=28.
