Elastic, inelastic and inclusive alpha cross sections have been measured. Coupled-channels calculations by including the couplings of projectile breakup channels and target excitations explain the measured elastic and inelastic data. The inclusive alpha particle production is found to be more than two-third of the total reaction cross section. From coupled-channels calculations, the contribution of α from the non-capture α-d breakup of the 6Li projectile is calculated to be very small. It suggests the possibility of many transfer induced breakup channels, having α as one of the breakup fragments, to be responsible for such a large α particle production.
