The angular asymmetry and the total cross section for the H3(,d) reaction have been measured. The total cross section measurement agrees with the most recent Faddeev-type calculation but the angular asymmetry departs from the prediction of a simple plane wave calculation that fits the He3(,d) data. In the absence of final state interactions the He3 and H3 asymmetries should be related by -1/5 (i.e., the isospin dependence). These data would appear to indicate that the E 2 final state interaction in the H3 (,d) reaction has to be carefully treated. NUCLEAR REACTIONS H3(,d), E=15-36 MeV. Measured (E).
