Abstract : Extensive spontaneous emission data on NeII has been obtained using a CW neon laser discharge as the spectroscopic source. The measured branching ratios are used to evaluate the accuracies of previous determinations of NeII 3p-3s and 3d-3p line strengths. The results show that some of the previously tabulated line strength values are clearly in need of revision. New determinations of the line strengths for the NeII 3p-3s, 3d-3p, and 4s-3p transitions are given. Calculated radiative lifetimes of various NeII 3s, 3p, 3d, and 4s states are also given and compared with the published experimental lifetimes for a few of the 3p and 4s states of NeII. (Author)
