Radiative lifetimes were measured using time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence from a laser-produced plasma. In addition, branching fractions were determined from intensity calibrated spectra recorded with a UV Fourier transform spectrometer. The branching fractions and radiative lifetimes have been combined to yield accurate transition probabilities and oscillator strengths. We present laboratory measured transition probabilities for 145 CrII lines and radiative lifetimes for 14 CrII levels. The laboratory measured transition probabilities are compared to the values from semi-empirical calculations and laboratory measurements in the literature.

Note (1): Use of the theoretical log(gf)s from Raasen & Uylings for the three transitions at 27328.36cm-1 is encouraged due to line blending in the experimental spectrum. Note (2): Kurucz R.L. 1988, Trans. IAU, XXB, M. McNally, ed., (Dordrecht: Kluwer), 168
