$$alpha$$-, $$gamma$$-, and conversion electron spectroscopy experiments for $$^{257}$$Rf have been performed using Fragment Mass Analyzer at Argonne National Laboratory. A new isomer with a half-life of 160 $$mu$$s has been discovered in $$^{257}$$Rf, and it is interpreted as a three-quasiparticle high-$$K$$ isomer. Neutron configurations of one-quasiparticle states in $$^{253}$$No, the $$alpha$$-decay daughter of $$^{257}$$Rf, have been assigned on the basis of $$alpha$$-decay hindrance factors. Excitation energies of the 1/2$$^{+}$$[620] states in $$N$$=151 isotones indicate that the deformed shell gap at $$N$$=152 increases with the atomic number.
