    • Abstract


      Systematic features of the signature inversion phenomenon in $(h_{11/2})_{\text{p}}\otimes (i_{13/2})_{\text{n}}$ in doubly-odd rare-earth nuclei are presented. These features are generally observed in high-$j$ orbitals, mainly, in $(h_{9/2})$, $(h_{11/2})$ and $(i_{13/2})$. Calculations are carried out within the framework of the two quasiparticle plus rotor model (TQPRM) to explain strong odd–even staggering and signature inversion observed in these high-$j$ orbitals. The shifting of point of inversion to lower/higher spin with the increase in neutron/proton numbers is well explained by the calculations. It is found that 1/2[541] proton orbital of $h_{9/2}$ is necessary in the lower mass region to obtain the point of inversion.
