 Problem Statement
 Justify the energy levels of Samarium154
 Relevant Equations
 Vibrational energyRotational energy
These are the experimental results for the energy levels of Samarium154:
From 0+ to 8+ I recognize rotational energy:
$$E = \frac{l(l+1)\hbar^2}{2I}$$
But from there on I do not know how to justify the rest.
I have been reading that we sometimes get energy diagrams like above for eveneven nucleus in the range 150190. In such diagrams we can talk about new rotational bands, getting vibrational states and pairbreaking particle excitations.
I have been reading an interpretation of Erbium164 (which is a similar case to Sm154) from Krane but I still don't get it...
Thank you for your help.
