We have made a high-resolution study of the weak transitions in the reaction Ca40(d,p)Ca41. Jπ assignments are suggested for several states on the basis of new l=2,3,4,5,and 6 determinations. It is suggested that the known 2010- and 2462-keV states form band heads of K=32+ and 32- rotational bands, respectively. The members of the K=32+ band are the states 2010 keV, 32+; 2605 keV, 52+; 2882 keV, 72+; 3201 keV, 92+; and 3678 keV, 112+. The members of the K=32- band are the states 2462 keV, 32-; 2575 keV, 52-; 2960 keV, 72-; 3370 keV, 92-; and 3831 keV, 112-. Parallel rotational bands in the mirror nucleus Sc41 are also suggested.
