Excited states in the neutron-deficient isotope 169Os have been identified for the first time in an experiment using the Jurosphere γ-ray spectrometer in conjunction with the Ritu gas-filled recoil separator. The problems associated with identifying neutron-deficient isotopes produced with low fusion cross sections against a high background of competing channels, including fission, have been overcome by using the recoil-decay tagging technique. The band structures observed in 169Os are interpreted in the context of the systematics of neighboring nuclei and the predictions of cranked Woods-Saxon calculations. The systematics of the second (i13/2)2 neutron alignment in this region are discussed.
