The pd reaction at ultra-low proton-deuteron collision energies has been studied using the Hall pulsed ion accelerator and the solid target of heavy water D2O. The experiment on measurement of the astrophysical Spd factor and the pd reaction cross-section was carried out at average pd collision energies 8.28, 9.49, and 10.10 keV. The 5.5-MeV γ rays from the pd reaction were detected by detectors based on plastic scintillators and NaI(Tl) crystals. Parameters of the accelerated hydrogen ion flux were measured and monitored with diagnostic equipment consisting of an energy analyzer, plasma optical radiation detectors, the Rogovsky belt, and collimated Faraday cups. The results obtained agree within the errors with the data of the pd experiments carried out by the LUNA collaboration at the Gran Sasso Laboratory with a target filled with gaseous deuterium. The reported experiment was carried out at the Hall ion accelerator of the Research Institute of Nuclear Physics, Tomsk Polytechnic University.
