The new neutron-rich raer-earth isotopes $$^{159}$$Pm, $$^{162}$$Sm, and $$^{166}$$Gd produced in the proton-induced fission of 238U were identified using the JAERI on-line isotope separator (JAERI-ISOL) coupled to a gas-jet transport sysetm. The half-lives of $$^{159}$$Pm, $$^{162}$$Sm, and $$^{166}$$Gd were determined to be 1.5$$pm$$0.2s, 2.4$$pm$$0.5s, and 4.8$$pm$$1.0s, respectively. The partial decay scheme of $$^{166}$$Gd wes constructed for $$gamma$$-$$gamma$$ coincidence data. The improved half-life values of 25.6$$pm$$2.2s wes obtained for the previously identified isotope $$^{166}$$Tb. The half-lives measured in the present study are in good agreement with the theoretical predictions calculated by the second generation of the gross theory with the atomic masses evaluated by the Audei and Wapstra.
