The rotational bands feeding the ground state and the isomeric state in the proton emitter Ho are presented using the recoil-decay tagging method. A quadrupole deformation of β = 0.25(4) was deduced for the ground state band. The observed band crossings and signature splittings agreed with the configurational assignments for the ground state and the isomer analyzed from the proton-decay rates.
