The D(d,p)T reaction cross section has been measured by two methods using D2O ice targets. For Ed from 206 to 516 kev, a double-focusing magnetic spectrometer was used to obtain the momentum spectrum of the protons and tritons, from which the reaction cross section can be determined. For Ed from 35 to 550 kev, the proton yield from a thick target was differentiated to obtain the cross section. Both thin and thick target methods were used to measure the angular distribution over the energy range Ed from 35 to 550 kev. The angular distribution is expressed in terms of a Legendre polynomial expansion. Various sources of experimental error are considered and the probable error of the total cross section is found to be ±5 percent.
