Elastic and inelastic scattering have proven an excellent method to probe the nuclear potential in the surface region . A surface diffuseness parameter of around 0.63 fm is accepted as describing elastic and inelastic scattering data. A new method to determine the diffuseness was proposed  using high precision quasi-elastic excitation functions at sub-barrier energies, and at backward angles. In response to this proposal, we have made measurements for 32S + Er, 186W, 197Au, 208Pb , and...[Show more]
