Abstract :

The optical model parameters were employed in the studies of nuclear reaction D(d,n)3He at several energies within the framework of the DWBA method of direct reaction. Various sets of optical model potentials were tried in the incident channel, while the n- 3He potentials were used in the exit channel. A fairly good description of the reaction was possible. The spectroscopic factors obtained in this way were around approximately half of these expected from the simple shell model. The reaction was looked upon as a stripping of the incident particle, but the possibility of target stripping cannot be ruled out.
