The quadrupole moments and deformations have been measured for six superdeformed bands in 150Gd. The results indicate evidence for deformation driving properties of both the high-N intruder and also low-N natural parity states at the superdeformed Fermi surface. Several new transitions have been identified and placed in the low spin non-yrast portion of one of the SD bands. © 1998 Published by Elsevier Science B.V.
