The JYFLTRAP double Penning trap at the Ion Guide Isotope Separator On-Line facility has been used to measure the atomic masses of 13 neutron-rich rare-earth isotopes. Eight of the nuclides, $^{161}\mathrm{Pm}, ^{163}\mathrm{Sm}, ^{164,165}\mathrm{Eu}, ^{167}\mathrm{Gd}$, and $^{165,167,168}\mathrm{Tb}$, were measured for the first time. The systematics of the mass surface has been studied via one- and two-neutron separation energies as well as neutron pairing-gap and shell-gap energies. The…

Erratum: Precision Mass Measurements on Neutron-Rich Rare-Earth Isotopes at JYFLTRAP: Reduced Neutron Pairing and Implications for r-Process Calculations [Phys. Rev. Lett. 120, 262701 (2018)].

TLDR
This corrects the article DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.120.262701 to reflect that the paper was first presented at the 2015 American Physical Society meeting, not the 2016 meeting, as previously reported.
