Bieniek, R.J., and S. Green, 1983: Collisional rates for vibrational-rotational transitions in circumstellar SiO masers. Astrophys. J., 265, L29-L33, doi:10.1086/183952.

Calculations for rotational population inversion in circumstellar SiO masers require collisional rates for vibrational-rotational transitions. This paper reports quantum mechanical, state-to-state collisional rate coefficients for pure rotational and vibrational-rotational transitions among the first three vibrational states of SiO. These are expressed in terms of simple two-parameter power-law fits accurate in the temperature range 1000-3000 K.
