The unitary pole approximation (UPA) provides an effective means to construct a rank one separable potential for calculations in which one requires a simple representation of the deuteron and/or triton ground-state wave function. By construction the deuteron wave function and the 1S0 anti-bound state wave function of the original potential are reproduced. We report results for the corresponding triton ground state. We choose to utilize the realistic Reid93 potential for this purpose. The Reid93 potential, generated by the Nijmegen group, is a Reid-like, partial-wave local potential that produces a χ2 representation of the nucleon-nucleon (NN) scattering data that is as precise as an NN partial-wave analysis. Results for properties of 2H and 3H from the UPA are compared with those for the original potential. To further illustrate the precision of the method, results for properties of the deuteron and triton from the UPA are also compared with those for the original Reid68 potential.
