Abstract

A discrete superdeformed rotational band has been discovered in 144Gd following the reaction 100Mo(48Ti, 4n)144Gd at 221 MeV. The dynamical moment of inertia shows a sharp irregularity at ħω=0.45 MeV. The intensity of the γ-ray transitions suggests that the irregularity can be associated with a backbend, which is interpreted in terms of the N=6 proton band crossing. The experimental results are in good agreement with cranked mean field calculations, which indicate the presence of large shell gaps for both protons and neutrons.
