The first, second, and third rank analyzing powers tT10, tT20, tT30, and tT20 as well as cross section angular distributions for 12C(7Li, t/d/p) at 34 MeV were measured. The experimental results gave nonzero values for tT10 and tT30 which is indicative of a non-statistical compound nucleus reaction mechanism according to Hauser-Feshbach predictions. The experimental results were compared to finite-range distorted wave Born approximation calculations are discussed along with previous results. The main goal of this work is to determine the reaction mechanism; do these reactions proceed via direct transfer or statistical compound nucleus formation, and if direct, did it occur in one step or multiple steps? The results indicate that all the reactions studied are direct to some degree. There is evidence for direct transfer of a 4,5 He cluster but not a 6He cluster.
