We present a phenomenological study of the 2H(d,γ) 4He reaction that allows for the D-state component of the colliding deuterons. The low-energy cross section is determined by an interference between E2 transitions from an initial 5S2 scattering state to either the D- or S-state components of 4He, the latter via the internal quadrupole moment of the deuteron. From a fit to the data, we determine the asymptotic D/S ratio of 4He to be ρ∼-0.40.
