We have measured radiative lifetimes of 35 levels of Nd II using the collinear beam-laser method. The levels studied had term energies up to ∼30 000 cm-1 and lifetimes of 10 to 100 ns. Experimental accuracy was in the range 1.5-14%. These measurements are a first step to providing new and updated oscillator strengths needed for abundance determinations from stellar spectra.
