Abstract

In order to understand primordial and stellar nucleosynthesis, we have studied 2H(d,p)3H reaction at 0.4 MeV down to astrophysical energies. Knowledge of its S-factor is interesting also to plan reactions for fusion reactors to produce energy. The 2H(d,p)H reaction has been studied through the Trojan Horse Method applied to the three-body reaction 2H(He,pt)H, at beam energy of 17 MeV. Once selection of protons and tritons detected in coincidence and the selection of quasi-free events, the obtained S-factor is compared with direct measurements. Such data are in agreement with the direct ones and a pole invariance test has been obtained comparing the present results with another 2H(d,p) 3H THM measurements, where a different spectator particle was employed.
