    Abstract

    Elastic scattering of identical nuclei results in oscillatory Mott scattering. The separation of the peaks is perturbed by the presence of the nuclear potential. Near-barrier measurements of Mott scattering of Ni58 from Ni58 have been made to obtain information on the diffuseness of the nuclear potential, giving a diffuseness parameter of 0.62±0.04 fm.
