Excited states in the neutron-deficient odd-Z nuclide Ta-161 were identified for the first time using the Cd-106(Ni-58,3p gamma) reaction at a beam energy of 270 MeV. The pi h(11/2) band, yrast at low spin, was observed up to (47/2(-)) and a further four strongly coupled bands have been established to high spin. Quasiparticle configuration assignments for the new band structures have been made on the basis of cranked shell model calculations. This work suggests that the negative-parity nu(f(7/2), h(9/2)) orbitals are responsible for the first rotational alignment in the pi h(11/2) band.
