Abstract

High-spin states of [Formula Presented] have been populated using the reaction [Formula Presented] at 130 MeV. The [Formula Presented] rays have been detected with the EUROGAM-2 array. New high-spin bands have been established in these nuclei and interpreted as terminating configurations using the Nilsson-Strutinsky cranking formalism. These bands were observed up to the predicted terminating states which are built from [Formula Presented] protons and [Formula Presented] proton holes combined with [Formula Presented] and [Formula Presented] neutrons relative to a [Formula Presented] core. Core-excited configurations with [Formula Presented] proton holes have been found to play an important role. The observed high-spin states assigned as terminating show systematic behavior and provide new information on the energy spacing between the [Formula Presented] and [Formula Presented] neutron subshells.
