Differential cross sections for elastic and inelastic scattering of 800 MeV protons from 58Ni have been measured to momentum transfers of 4 fm-1. The elastic scattering data were fit using a phenomenological optical model potential. The inelastic scattering was analyzed in the distorted wave Born approximation (DWBA) to obtain deformation lengths.
