The energies and angular distributions of proton groups produced in the Cd113(d, p)Cd114 reaction were measured with an over-all resolution of 12 keV. A distorted-wave analysis, employing experimentally determined optical-model parameters, was used to extract values of ln and spectroscopic strengths for states up to 3.8-MeV excitation in Cd114. The spectroscopic factors of the low-energy states are compared with those predicted by a microscopic theory of nuclear vibrations. Reasonable agreement is found for the ground and one-quadrupole-phonon states, but not for the two-phonon states.
