Dipole transitions linking the superdeformed Yrast signature-partner bands in 195Tl have been observed using the EUROGAM 1 spectrometer. From the measurements of the photon decay branching ratios, taken together with the average quadrupole moment measured in neighbouring superdeformed nuclei, we find that the two signature partner superdeformed bands involve the excitation of the 81 st proton into the i 13 2Ω= 5 2 intruder orbital.
