## Abstract

High-spin states of the stable isotope ^{182}W have been studied using the reactions ^{176}Yb(^{13}C, α3n)^{182}W and ^{176}Yb(^{9}Be, 3n)^{182}W at beam energies of 65 and 40 MeV, respectively. Three, possibly four, new intrinsic states at high spins have been observed corresponding to different high-K four-quasi-particle structures. The K^{π} = 15^{+} and 17^{-} levels have lifetimes of 78(15) and 25(10) ns, respectively. Rotational bands are observed built on the K^{π} = 16^{+} and 17^{-} yrast states. The coupling of Nilsson orbitals which give rise to high-K states at the yrast line and the K-forbiddenness of the K^{π} = 15 ^{+} isomeric decay are discussed.
