The rate for the excitation of stretched states in a deformed model can be considerably smaller than in the single particle model. In one specific case, and in an approximation in which rotational currents are neglected, the two rates differ by a factor of (2J+1)2, where J is the angular momentum of the stretched states. Thus, as has been noted by Amusa and Lawson, nuclear structure effects can explain all or a large part of the observed quenching.
