Excited states in the150.151.152 isotopes have been investigated using the130Te(27Al, xn) reaction and the EUROGAM array. The theoretical interpretation of the level schemes has been performed in the framework of thedeformed independent particle model. The feeding patterns of the normal-deformed states by the superdeformed bands in150.151Tb istopes have alsobeen established. The results indicate that the decay-out mechanism of thebands is not of purely statistical nature, but depends on the configurationsof both normal-and superdeformed states.
