Title: Modern optical potentials and the role of nuclear structure

Abstract

Microscopic descriptions of exotic nuclei are the subject of much experimental and theoretical effort. Not only are such important in their own right but are also necessary for applications in nuclear astrophysics. Evaluations of model wave functions may be done with analyses of elastic and inelastic scattering from hydrogen. Those require a realistic model of nucleon-nucleus scattering as scattering from hydrogen translates to proton scattering in the inverse kinematics. The Melbourne g-folding model for intermediate energy is presented along with various examples. Implications for existing and future experimental and theoretical work are discussed.
