Angular distributions have been measured for the 6Li(e, d0) reaction in the excitation energy range 10-28 MeV. The differential cross sections are decomposed into E1 and E2 components on the basis of a simple cluster model. The E2 strength deduced using a virtual photon spectrum is spread over the entire energy region studied. This strength reflects isoscalar E2 excitations in 6Li. The E1 strength, which results from isospin mixing, shows no significant structure.
