Abstract High spin states in the nucleus156Ho have been studied via the fusion-evaporation reaction140Ce(19F,3nγ)156Ho at the beam energy of 82 MeV.γ-γ coincidences, Eγ, Iγ and excitation functions have been measured. With two rotationally-aligned bands identified as π[h11/2]ν [i13/2], we found two new bands with a signature splitting, whose structure is believed to arise from either ν[h9/2] or ν[f7/2] coupled to π[h11/2]. Our placement of γ rays belonging to these new bands suggests that the previously known level scheme should be corrected. We also found many new low-energy γ rays in the low excitation energy. As compared to154Ho, the present nucleus with two more neutrons becomes more collective, and shows well-observed rotationally-aligned bands with a clear signature splitting.
