151,153Sm isotopes were investigated using (p,d) reactions at the STARLiTeR setup at Texas A&M. High resolution detectors and Compton suppression allowed for extraction of the gamma-strength function for gamma-ray energies as low as 500 keV.  The Oslo method applied to particle-gamma coincidences obtained using the or the first observation of an enhancement, “upbend”, in the low-energy range of the gamma-strength function of rare earth elements.
