Abstract

We have measured the atomic transition probabilities of 80 spectral lines belonging to 3s-3p, 3p-3d, and 3p-4s multiplets of O II using a wall-stabilized arc. We applied recent lifetime results obtained for several 3p 4D levels to normalize our relative data to an absolute scale, and we estimate that the uncertainties of our data are in the range from 8% to 9%. The agreement of our multiplet values with recent advanced calculations is typically in the range from 5% to 15%. For many lines of the 3p-3d multiplets, the agreement of our experimental data with intermediate coupling calculations is much better than with LS-coupling data.
