Excited states in 155Gd nuclei were populated in the 154Sm (α, 3n) reaction at a beam energy of 33MeV. The aim is to establish firm spin and parity assignments for the many complex rotational bands that have been observed in this nucleus and to observe which couplings are blocked by which quasi-neutrons in order to establish the under lying microstructure of the collective excitations of the 154Gd core.
