In this study we present the preliminary results about the lifetimes of the 2+2, 4+1 states of 208Po and the upper limit of the lifetime of the 2+1 state. For measuring the lifetimes of the 2+1 and 4+1 states the Recoil Distance Doppler Shift (RDDS) method and for the lifetime of the 2+2 state the Doppler Shift Attenuation method (DSAM) were used. The resulting absolute transition strength B(M1; 2+2 to 2+1)≥0.122(20) μ2N reveals the predominant isovector nature of the 2+2 state of 208Po.
