Three examples of recent nuclear structure studies using Gammasphere axe di
scussed in this paper. (1) A rotational band has been identified in Cd-108.
Its moment of inertia and quadrupole moment indicate that this band has a
shape with an axis ratio larger than 1.8:1. (2) Possible "Jacobi" shape tra
nsitions at high spin were investigated from studies of the continuum gamma
rays on a number of nuclei. (3) Population of high-spin states in neutron-
rich nuclei were studied in target fragmentation reactions. States with spi
n up to 6-12h were observed in a wide range of nuclei.
