Abstract: Using the nuclear diffraction model and high-energy approximation with double-folding potential, the observed quasi-elastic scattering cross sections of nuclei 6He, 7Be, 8B from 12C at intermediate energies were described. The calculations were performed using realistic nucleon density distribution for the target nuclei. Moreover, the Coulomb interaction and the inelastic scattering with excitation of low-lying collective states of the target were taken into account.

Keywords: nuclear diffraction, halo nuclei, double-folding potential, quasielastic scattering.
