Spectra of heavy water have been obtained under high resolution between 1.25—4.1μ (2400—8000 cm—1). Approximately 4500 lines have been measured, and the majority of them analyzed into ten bands of D2O and nine bands of HDO. The analysis is described in some detail, spectra of all bands are shown and a partial table of lines and a complete table of energy levels are presented. The vibration-rotation constants are derived and compared with those of H2O.
