The hole-hole structure of 94Y was studied via the reaction 96Zr(d, α)94Y and compared to the particle-hole structure of 90Y, which was populated by the reaction 92Zr(d, α)90Y. The deuteron beam energy was 28 MeV. Angular distributions of both reactions were obtained for the prominent lines. New states of 94Y were observed at 0.44, 1.17, 1.39, 1.53, 1.82, 1.90, 2.17, 2.33, 2.46 and 2.77 MeV. Our data are consistent with the previously reported 2- assignment of the ground state, and we suggest Jπ = 3- for the 0.44 MeV state, these being members of the (π2p 1 2, ν2d 3 2-1) doublet. The 1.17 state is suggested to be a member of the (πp 3 2-1, νd 5 2-1) multiplet. The Q-value of the 96Zr(d, α)94Y reaction was measured to be 7.609 ± 0.020 MeV. The reaction 94Zr(d, α) was performed at two angles. Several new states of 92Y were observed at 0.31, 0.78, 1.03, 1.31, 1.49, 1.69 and 1.89 MeV.
