Abstract: CoRoT (Convection Rotation and planetary Transits) and Kepler observations of red giants reveal rich spectra of non-radial solar-like oscillations allowing their internal structures to be probed. We investigate an evolutionary sequence along the Red Giant Branch to determine when during the evolution of these stars g-dominated mixed modes are more likely to be detectable. We found that radiative damping in the core plays an important role in giving a theoretical limit on the evolutionary sequence for the detectability of g-dominated mixed modes.
