Differential cross sections for the elastic scattering of neutrons from 40Ca have been measured in the 19-26 MeV region. The neutron elastic scattering data, previous neutron measurements and additional proton elastic scattering data are analyzed using three different approaches to the optical model potential: Woods-Saxon parameterization, model independent analysis and microscopic calculations. The difference between the phenomenological neutron and proton real potentials is studied in terms of Coulomb effects, nuclear polarization and charge symmetry breaking in the nuclear mean field.
