High-spin states in 143Pm have been investigated via the 128Te(<tex2htmlcommentmark> 19F,4n$\gamma $)143Pm reaction using techniques of in-beam $\gamma $ -spectroscopy. $\gamma $-ray singles, $\gamma $-$\gamma $coincidences, $\gamma $-ray anisotropies and DCO ratios have been measured. Based on these measurements, the level scheme of 143Pm has been extended up to an excitation energy of 10535.4 keV, including 48 new $\gamma $-rays deexciting 28 new levels. The yrast levels in 143Pm can be understood qualitatively in the framework of a weak-coupling model.
