The complete spectrum of γ rays following the decay of superdeformed (SD) states in 192 Hg has been extracted. The spectrum, which comprises a quasicontinuous component and sharp lines, reveals the decay mechanism and defines the excitation energies of the SD band. The decay of SD states results from the coupling between a cold, ordered SD system with a hot, chaotic one with normal deformation.
