This report summarizes experiments performed on 164Dy using photon scattering techniques. The scissors mode in 164Dy has been reinvestigated using unpolarized photons from bremsstrahlung and polarized photons from a free electron laser. The current experiments lead to the observation of a new decay mode of the scissors mode in well-deformed rotors.
