The 91Zr(d, 3He) reaction was studied at a deuteron energy of 28 MeV. Angular distributions were measured from 13° to 47°; lp values were extracted for the prominent lines of 90Y. The lp values and transition strengths were determined by DWBA analysis. The angular distributions for the (πp 1 2)(νd 5 2) doublet (g.s. and 0.20 MeV state) exhibit the characteristic l = 1 shape. States at 1.42, 1.57, 1.64 and 1.81 MeV were also populated strongly in the (d, 3He) reaction; the 1.42, 1.57 and 1.81 MeV levels contain l= 1 transition strength and are most likely members of the (πp 3 2-1)(νd 5 2) multiplet. The 2.03 MeV state has a characteristic l = 3 angular distribution and is suggested to be the only member of the (πf 3 2-1)(νd 5 2) sextet to be unambiguously observed in this study, most probably the 5- or 4- member. The members of the (πg 5 2)(νd 9 2) sextet were populated weakly (less than 100 μb/sr) in this reaction.
