High-spin states in 167Hf, populated in the 141Pr(30Si, p3n)167Hf reaction, have been studied using the NORDBALL Ge detector array. Three rotational cascades have been observed for the first time and the previously-known level scheme has been extended to significantly higher spin. Band-crossing effects are discussed within the framework of Woods-Saxon cranking calculations and are found to be in good agreement.
