Gamma-rays from the Spontaneous Fission of 252Cf were measured with Gammasphere and have given great insight into the structure of neutron rich nuclei. We have examined high-spin states and the gamma-transitions associated with octupole correlations in {143-146{Ba and 148Ce. Coexisting quadrupole/octupole deformation is characterized by two Delta I = 1 rotational bands with opposite parities. The states in these two rotational bands are described by a quantum number called simplex with s^2 = (-1)^A. In 143Ba, the levels are extended to 43/2^+ with a total of six new levels along with two new transitions. In 144Ba, we have placed new levels including three E1 transitions and 8 linking transitions to the s = +1 band to give more definitive evidence for the s = -1 band. Six new levels are found in 145Ba. For 144Ba and 148Ce we have, for the first time in even-even isotopes, confirmed the spin/parity of some s = -1 levels using angular correlations.
