The Mo92, 98(d,)Nb90, 96 reactions have been studied at a bombarding energy of 17 MeV. Attention is given to the states previously observed in (He3,t) reactions that are thought to arise from simple particle-hole multiplets. Distorted-wave (DW) calculations were carried out with spectroscopic amplitudes calculated from assumed simple configurations. The DW calculations are found to be sensitive to variations in a number of parameters. It is found that the normalization constants needed to fit the observed cross sections vary widely for members of a single multiplet. In addition, the average normalization constants needed for states of the (g92)2 multiplet in Nb90 and the (g92d52) multiplet in Nb96 differ by a factor of 4.
