Deuteron induced reactions at intermediate energies are investigated at Internal Target Station (ITS) of Nuclotron. The dp elastic scattering data have been accumulated in the angular range (70° - 120°) in c.m from 0.3 to 2.0 GeV of deuteron energy. Part of the obtained results of differential cross sections and analyzing powers of dp elastic scattering are compared with theoretical predictions based on relativistic multi-scattering model. The dp breakup data are obtained with the detection of two outgoing protons at the angles of (19° - 54°) in laboratory frame at the deuteron energies from 0.3 to 0.5 GeV in various detector configurations. One of the tools to study spin structure of short range correlations is the measurements of the cross section, tensor analyzing power T20 and spin correlation parameter Cy,y in the d3He → p(0°)4He reaction at the energies between 1.0 and 1.75 GeV using polarized 3He target and extracted polarized deuteron beam from new polarized ion source at Nuclotron. For this purposes the feasibility study has been performed. Proposed experiments on extracted deuteron beam of Nuclotron is aimed to investigate: non-nucleonic degrees of freedom and baryonic resonances properties in the d(A,d(0°))X and d(A,π-(0°))X reactions at different energies, non-nucleonic degrees of freedom via the measurements of the tensor Ayy and vector Ay analyzing powers in d(A,π-)X reaction and polarization properties of the baryonic resonances in the d(A,d)X reaction and others. First measurement of vector and tensor polarization of new polarized ion source has been performed in June-July of 2016y.
