Green, S., 1989: Collisional excitation of interstellar molecules: Deuterated water, HDO. Astrophys. J. Supp. Series, 70, 813-831, doi:10.1086/191358.

Rates for rotational excitational of deuterated water, HDO, in collisions with He atoms have been obtained from extensive theoretical calculations. Rates among the 34 rotational levels with energy below 400 /cm (about 600 K) are given for kinetic temperatures between 50 and 500 K.
