High-spin states of the 44Ca nucleus populated in the 68 MeV 18O + 30Si reaction have been studied in a - -recoil coincidence experiment. The level scheme of 44Ca has been extended up to 12.2 MeV. In particular, the negative-parity band has been identified with the highest I = 13- level at 10.6 MeV. This state is interpreted as the band-terminating state for the ( d3/2 -1 f7/25) configuration.
