Abstract

Recent advances in experimental high spin physics are discussed. The advent of arrays of high performances Compton-suppressed Germanium detectors has allowed weakly populated exotic structures in nuclei to be observed. The observation of discrete-line superdeformed bands at the highest known spins has posed many physics questions which are currently being addressed, and some of these aspects of superdeformation are discussed. Rotational bands associated with superdeformed shapes have been observed in the neighbouring nuclei, and in some cases the transition energies are identical to 1 part in 1000. This implies that the nuclear moment of inertia can remain unchanged with respect to the addition or removal of a particular nucleon. The next generation of γ-ray detector arrays for the 1990’s is discussed.
