Summary, in English

Aims. This work reports oscillator strengths for transitions of astrophysical interest in singly ionized rhodium. Methods. Seventeen radiative lifetimes in Rh+ have been measured with the time-resolved laser-induced fluorescence technique and combined with theoretical branching fractions calculated using a relativistic Hartree-Fock model including core-polarization effects to obtain oscillator strengths. Results. On the basis of the good agreement between theory and experiment for the lifetimes, new reliable oscillator strengths have been deduced for a set of 113 Rh II transitions in the spectral range 153-418 nm.
