Main Question or Discussion Point

Deuterium atom is an isotope of hydrogen [NP]e- that is a fermion. Would it be correct the model the deuteron [NP] nucleus as a boson, given that it has even number of particles ? That is, would it be correct to say that two deuteron [NP], as bosons, could occupy the same particle state because the Pauli Exclusion would not apply ?

Could, yes. Not too likely in practice. Boson condensate is an example, but it is hard to make.
