Abstract

Excited states in the nucleus 151Tb have been investigated up to spin 91 2h {combining short solidus overlay} and energy 16.5 MeV using the 130Te(27Al, 6n) reaction and the EUROGAM array. The theoretical interpretation of the level scheme has been performed in the framework of the deformed independent particle model. The feeding patterns of the normal-deformed states by both the yrast and first excited superdeformed bands have also been established. The results indicate that the decay-out mechanism of the bands is not of purely statistical nature, but depends on the configurations of both normal- and superdeformed states.
