The 7+ states in Al26 were studied by the Mg24(±,d)26Al reaction at E±=63.7 MeV and by the Mg25(3He,d)26Al reaction at Eh=55.2 MeV. Five 7+ states were newly identified, in addition to the known 8.14-MeV 7+ state, from the (±,d) angular distributions. Comparisons of the (±,d) and (3He,d) cross sections showed that the 11.81-MeV state was excited through the (d5/2g9/2) component and the other 7+ states through the (f7/2)2 component.
