Combined data from four fusion-evaporation reaction experiments were utilized to investigate deformed and superdeformed structures in 3062Zn32. Combination of the Gammasphere γ-ray spectrometer and ancillary particle detection systems allowed for the connection of rotational bands to well-known, low-lying excited states in Zn62, as well as spectroscopy of discrete high-spin states reaching excitation energies of Ex=42.5 MeV. Four well- or superdeformed bands in Zn62 are characterized and described by means of cranked Nilsson-Strutinsky calculations.
