The double-stripping reaction N15(He3, p)O17 has been studied with a magnetic spectrograph at an incident He3 energy of 18 MeV, with an energy resolution of about 30 keV. Differential cross sections have been measured for transitions to states in O17 up to an excitation energy of 11 MeV. The data have been analyzed in the distorted-wave Born approximation using the Glendenning formalism and the multishell shell-model wave functions of Zuker, Buck, and McGrory for states in O17. The model wave functions are found to fit the data quite well for a number of low lying-states. However, several exceptions are also found.
