The orientation dependence of the d(d, n)3He reaction probability in a TiD2 crystal at a deuteron energy of 7–12 keV is investigated. The BCM-1.0 code developed for calculating the trajectories of channeled particles within classical mechanics is used to simulate deuteron trajectories at (200)-planar channeling in a 0.15-μm-thick Ti crystal with the angular divergence of the beam taken into account. The enhancement of the reaction probability in the computer experiments is 2.1 in the case of a parallel deuteron beam and near-zero crystal entry angles relative to the (200) planes. In the case of a deuteron beam with its angular divergence equal to 1/5 of the critical channeling angle, the maximum reaction-probability enhancement is 1.5. The results of calculations agree qualitatively with recent experiments performed at Tomsk Polytechnic University.
