An experiment focusing on study of the properties of hot rotating compound nucleus of 88Mo was performed in LNL Legnaro using 48Ti beam at energies of 300 and 600 MeV on 40Ca target. The compound nucleus was produced at the temperatures of 3 and 4.5 MeV, with angular momentum distribution with lmax > 60 ħ (i.e. exceeding the crtical angular momentum for fission). High-energy gamma rays, measured in coincidence with evaporation residues and alpha particles, were analyzed with the statistical model. The GDR parameters were obtained from the best fit to the data, which allowed investigating an evolution of the GDR width up to high temperatures.
