Based on the quark-gluon contents of nucleon and strongly believing that the force mediators, Pomeron and its counterpart in the conventional approach of Regge theory, for high energy diffractive process would be the tensor glueball and Odderon respectively, we discuss photo-production of vector meson phi off the deuteron at energy less than 3 GeV in the QCD inspired model in which the quark gluon degrees of freedom and glueball, Odderon exchange are taken into account. A calculation is performed for gamma + D -> phi + D, and the theoretical predictions of the differential cross section d sigma(gamma D)/dt, are presented and compared with available experimental data. Our QCD inspired model reproduces data quite well in the whole range of the experimental measurements up to vertical bar t vertical bar congruent to 0.4 GeV. Our results can be used to extract gamma n -> phi n data, which cannot be measured in experiment.
