Abstract

Differential cross sections have been measured for the scattering of 135 MeV protons from 16O and data from the transitions to 13 states (up to 19.5 MeV excitation) have been analysed using microscopic and macroscopic nuclear reaction models. Extensive collective model calculations have been made of the transitions to all natural-parity states. The deformation parameters for the 4p4h rotational band are in good agreement with theoretical models. The inelastic scattering data from the excitation of the negative-parity states have also been analysed in the distorted-wave approximation using microscopic (shell and RPA) models of nuclear structure and with density-dependent two-nucleon t-matrice..
