Experimental relative transition probabilities for the 16 more pro-eminent lines arising from the 6p configurations of Au II were determined from the emission-line intensities in a laser-produced plasma. The experiment was carried out using a Cu-Au alloy with 10% Au content in order to obtain an optically thin plasma. Transition probabilities were placed on an absolute scale by using theoretical lifetimes calculated in this work, line-strength sum rules and Boltzmann plot. A comparison has been conducted between present experimental results, the theoretical data available and new calculations with the multi-configuration Dirac-Fock method reported in this work, as well as a study of the plasma conditions.
