An experiment has been carried out using the Eurogam array which consisted of 42 escape suppressed germanium detectors in order to study the properties of the superdeformed structures in 151Tb. A first 4-dimensional analysis of the data show that these superdeformed bands decay out at different rotational frequencies, with the yrast superdeformed band decaying out at much larger rotational frequency. New γ-rays has been added to the yrast and excited superdeformed bands and the remarkable similarity in γ-ray transitions energies between the identical bands in 151Tb and 152Dy has been confirmed over a quite large range of rotational frequencies.
