The decay of superdeformed rotational bands is studied within the framework of the compound mixing model, in which the intensity loss is governed by the tunneling probability between the superdeformed and the normal potential well, the electromagnetic transition rates and the level density of normal compound states. The tunneling probabilities are calculated microscopically for 30 superdeformed bands, taking into account pairing and shell effects. The calculated intensities are compared with experiment for the cases of 152Dy and 192Hg, which are representative of the A ≈ 150 and 190 regions.
