Resonance fluorescence is used for measuring the widths of 13 levels in 40Ca below 10.4 MeV among which nine E2 transitions were identified. The total E2 strength of those nine levels together with some other known 2+ levels below 10 MeV exhausts 22% of the energy weighted sum rule. The partial and total widths of the strong M1 state at 10.32 MeV are compared with theory.
