## Abstract

Second minimum structures have been observed for the first time in the doubly odd nucleus [Formula Presented]Pr. Two new bands are interpreted as based on the [Formula Presented] configuration and a third as the [Formula Presented] configuration. Signature splitting effects observed in the [Formula Presented] bands provide new information regarding the positive parity proton orbitals at large deformation. Results from the extracted [Formula Presented] ratios are consistent with a large deformation for the [Formula Presented] bands.
