The capture of protons and deuterons by deuterons has been studied up to energies of 1.5 Mev. An upper limit of ~10^-31 cm^2 has been found for the D(dγ) reaction near 1 Mev. The gamma-radiation from D(pγ) has been found to have an angular distribution obeying a sin2θ law. The cross section of the reaction is given empirically from 0.5 to 1.5 Mev by σ=0.74E^0.72×10^-29 cm^2 for E in Mev.
