The single-neutron pick-up reaction cross sections appear to be better correlated with the rms radius of the neutron orbit rather than with r0, the radius parameter of the single-particle Woods-Saxon well. Form factors which correspond to particles bound by the experimental separation energies and which have rms radii for the 2s 1 2, 1d 3 2 and 1f 7 2 orbits obtained from Coulomb energy shifts, lead to spectroscopic factors and S>/S< ratio for the 46,48,50Ti(p, d) reactions which are in a much better agreement with theoretical expectations than those obtained with constant r0.
