Angular distributions [...] of He[superscript 4](d,d)He[superscript 4] have been obtained, using a gas scattering chamber, for deuteron bombarding energies from 2.935-11.475 MeV at half-MeV intervals. A lithium drafted solid-state detector was used to detect the scattered deuterons and recoil alpha particles. The phase shift and single level analyses performed with the data result in energy levels in Li[superscript 6] at excitation energies of E[subscript x] = 4.57, 4.62 and 7.19 MeV, and have respective J[superscript pi] assignments of 2[superscript +], 1[superscript +] and 1[superscript -]. There is a great degree of confidence in the assignments for the first two levels; however, further analysis is necessary to confirm the assignments to the third level.
