52 levels below Ex=6.8 MeV in Al26 were populated with the Al27(He3,α) reaction at a bombarding energy of 18 MeV. Angular distributions for 37 levels were extracted and compared with the results of distorted-wave calculations. Of these, 28 were seen to be characteristic of direct pickup; 2 with ln=0,3 with ln=1,10 with ln=0+2 and 13 with ln=2. A comparison with the results of the Al27(d,He3)Mg26 reaction shows good agreement for known T=1 states and allows several new T=1 assignments to be made. Spectroscopic factors for several of the low-lying states are in good agreement with shell-model predictions.
