The reaction [...] has been studied for photon energies between 500 and 900 mev. Bremsstrahlung from the California Institute of Technology electron synchrotron interacted in a liquid deuterium target. A measurement of the energy and angle of the protons arising in such interactions was sufficient to establish that photodisintegration without pion emission had occurred and to determine the energy of the photon which gave rise to the detected proton. An excitation curve was obtained at 90° in the laboratory and angular distributions were measured for photon energies of 500 and 700 mev. The results imply a total cross section which decreases from [...] at 500 mev to [...] at 900 mev.
