Isospin effects in nucleon inelastic scattering have been studied by comparing quadrupole deformation parameters deduced from measured (n, n′) cross sections with values for (p, p′) and values for electromagnetic excitation found in the literature. Proton-vibrational nuclei with N=50 and neutron-vibrational nuclei with Z=50 were studied. Predicted effects of core polarization are observed. Difficulties in interpreting detailed numerical relationships are discussed.
