The 34S(p, d)33S reaction has been studied at a proton energy of 35 MeV. Deuteron spectra were analyzed in a magnetic spectrograph with an over-all energy resolution, full width at half-maximum, of about 8 keV. Excitation energies were measured for levels in 33S through 7.5 MeV excitation with an accuracy of ±(1.0 keV + 0.5 keV per 1 MeV of excitation). Values of the orbital angular momenta of neutrons transferred in these transitions, and the corresponding spectroscopic factors, were extracted from the data by means of distorted-wave Born-approximation calculations. Several new Jπ=1/2+ assignments were made. The experimental results are compared to the predictions of current nuclear structure theories for this nucleus.
