The high-spin states of 145Tb have been studied in the 118Sn( 32 S, 1p4n) reaction at 32S energies from 161 to 175 MeV using techniques of in-beam $\gamma $-ray spectroscopy. Measurements of $\gamma $-ray excitation functions and $\gamma $- $\gamma $- t coincidences were performed with 12 BGO(AC)HPGe detectors. Based on the measured results of $\gamma $- $\gamma $ coincidences, $\gamma $-ray anisotropies and DCO ratios, a level scheme for 145Tb was established for the first time. The observed excited states show typical irregular pattern in a spherical nucleus, and the low-lying levels have been interpreted qualitatively with a particle-core coupling.
