It is proposed that the fast deuterons observed among the products of high energy nuclear reactions are to be understood in terms of a "pick-up" or sudden rearrangement process. A theoretical treatment of such a process is given which suffices to interpret presently existing data. Further experiments are proposed to test the hypothesis critically, and a possible application of this type of experiment to the determination of nuclear wave functions is pointed out.
