We report absolute oscillator strengths for 119 Cr II transitions in the wavelength region 2050-4850 angstrom. The transition probabilities have been derived by combining radiative lifetimes, measured with time- resolved laser induced fluorescence, and branching fractions from intensity calibrated Fouirer transform spectrometer data. New radiative lifetimes for the 3d(4)(D-5)4p F-4, D-4 and P-6 terms are reported, adding up to a total of 25 energy levels with measured lifetimes used to derive this improved set of atomic data.
