H3 has been used as the bombarding particle to effect nuclear reactions. H3 was produced by (d, H3) reaction in Be and Ag and immediately utilized as are neutrons in a fast neutron bombardment. The energy of the H3 particles was about 10 Mev. The target was a stack of Ag foils in front of which different thicknesses of Be were placed and a 10-Mev deuteron beam was made to impinge on the Be. The H3 generated within Be, produced the 13-hour Pd109 activity in Ag foils as confirmed by chemistry. The reaction is believed to be Ag109 (H3, He3) Pd109. Spurious (n, p) reaction was estimated and corrected for. The observed range of H3 in different materials is discussed. The threshold for the H3 reaction in Ag is roughly estimated to be between 1.1 and 1.5 Mev.
