A recoil distance method was used to measure half-lives of the excited states of 145Sm. The reaction used was 139La(10B, 4n)145Sm. A plunger system was used. Half-lives were determined for two excited states for the first time. The yrast 27/2+ state was found to have a half-life of 1.1 $\pm$ 0.2 ns corresponding to the retardation of 3.1 $\times$ 10-4 comparing with the single particle estimate of M1. The excitation energy of this state was well reproduced by the shell model calculation having a mixed configuration of [$\pi${h11/2(g7/2)-2 (d5/2)-1 }10-, $\nu$f7/2] + [$\pi${h11/2(g7/2)-1}9-,$\nu$h9/2]. Another retarded E1 transition was also found in a decay of a 21/2+ state. Its retardation was 1.6 $\times$ 10-4 comparing with the single particle value.
