Differential cross sections have been measured for 41(d, t)40K and 41K(p, d)40K at 15 MeV using a magnetic spectrograph with electronic detection by proportional-counter-scintillator telescopes or semiconductor detectors. Knowledge of the structure of the 40K multiplets (νf 7 2, πd 3 2-1) and (νp 3 2, πd 3 2-1) permits the determination of amplitudes and relative phases for various configurations and neutron correlations in the 41K ground state. Spectroscopic factors for neutron pick-up to states in 40K are strongly influenced by the interference of transition amplitudes. In the (d, t) reaction T= 1, 2p-2h states are also observed.
