Description: Lifetime measurements of high spin states are obtained by the Doppler-shift recoil-distance method. Transition quadrupole moments are extracted from these data. Expanding on earlier experimental work, lifetime and moment of inertia measurements were made for /sup 172/W. The data for transition quadrupole moments for the yrast states reveals an unexpected drop at high spin which can be explained by the simultaneous alignment of h/sub 9/2/ protons and i/sub 13/2/ neutrons. This conclusion is supported by moment of inertia measurements which show evidence of a 3-band crossing. 9 refs., 10 figs., 2 tabs. (DWL)
