Abstract Precise level lifetimes have been measured for various superdeformed bands in {sup 148,149}Gd and {sup 152}Dy with the Doppler-shift attenuation method. From the derived quadrupole moments, {ital Q}{sub 0}, we find large differences in deformation between the yrast bands and some excited bands in the gadolinium isotopes. Moreover, two of the excited Gd bands and the {sup 152}Dy yrast band, which have identical moments of inertia, have different elongations, supporting the picture that alignment and deformation effects cancel in identical bands. {copyright} {ital 1996 The American Physical Society.}
