The cross section of the d + He-3 -> alpha + p fusion reaction has been determined with regard to its systematic variation with energy (E-CM) based on the available experimental data. Information is provided on the angular distribution d sigma/d Omega (theta(p), E) at energies up to E-CM = 8.0 MeV and the total cross section sigma(E-CM) for the range E-CM = 3.0-8.0 MeV. The relevance of the presented results for fusion plasmas heated with RF heating of He-3 minority in D and DT plasmas is discussed.
