We have derived absolute dipole strength‐function information for 176Lu from an average resonance capture study of 175Lu with 2‐keV neutrons, and from neutron capture cross‐section measurements with neutrons from 30 keV to about 1 MeV. We found that we needed to increase our previous estimate of the relative m1/E1 strengths near 5 MeV by a factor of 3, and to revise downward the absolute magnitude of our E1 strength function. We accomplished the latter, while still maintaining continuity with the photonuclear data, by adjusting the one free parameter in our line shape. The present E1 and M1 strengths now seem correct both near the neutron separation energy and also around 1 MeV.
