Superdeformed excitations in 198Po were studied using the 174Yb(29Si,5n) reaction and γ-ray spectroscopy with Gammasphere. Energy-spin entry distributions for populating normal (ND) and superdeformed (SD) excitations were extracted by gating on discrete ND and SD transitions, respectively. Information on the SD excitation energy, SD well depth, and fission barrier in 198Po was deduced.
