Measurement of the electric dipole moment (EDM) of 2 H or of 3 He may well come prior to the coveted measurement of the neutron EDM. Exact model calculations for the deuteron are feasible, and we explore here the model dependence of such deuteron EDM calculations. We investigate in a separable potential approach the relationship of the full model calculation to the plane wave approximation, correct an error in an early potential model result, and examine the tensor force aspects of the model

We conclude that, because one-pion exchange dominates the EDM calculation, separable potential model calculations should provide an adequate picture of the 2 H EDM until better than 10% measurements are achieved. Prior Results As background to our discussion, we recall that in 1985 Avishai [7] estimated d (2) D using a separable p-wave poten-EPJ Web of Conferences , 04016 (2010)
