## Abstract

The quadrupole moments of three decoupled bands in the odd-odd nuclei [Formula Presented] and [Formula Presented] were measured using the Doppler shift attenuation method in the bombardment of [Formula Presented]Pd with [Formula Presented]Cl at 173 MeV. The [Formula Presented][Formula Presented][Formula Presented] configuration was assigned to these structures on the basis of the observed in-band properties and relative deformations. New information is presented on the shape-driving behavior of the [Formula Presented][541] [Formula Presented][Formula Presented] intruder neutron orbital, whose involvement in a particular configuration leads to quadrupole deformation values which are intermediate between those known for normally deformed and so-called superdeformed bands in this mass region.
