New results will be presented for the structure of neutron-rich Fe nuclei based on data from deep inelastic scattering studies with GAMMASPHERE and beta decay of Mn nuclei at ISOLDE isolated with the Resonance Ionization Laser Ion Source. In particular, the low-energy levels in 64Fe are found to be well described by shell-model calculations using pf –shell neutrons and protons. The main yrast sequence in the odd-mass Fe nuclei will be presented and interpreted as the weak coupling of a g9/2 neutron to two f7/2 proton holes.
