Proton elastic and inelastic scattering angular distributions to the 2(1)(+) and the 3(1)(-) states for the neutron-rich nucleus O-20 were measured with a secondary beam using the MUST silicon strip detector array. Data for O-18 were also obtained for comparison. A phenomenological analysis has been used to deduce the deformation parameters beta(p,p), for the collective excitations, Matter and transition densities were generated from self-consistent QRPA calculations. DWBA calculations using microscopic optical potentials obtained with these densities and the JLM interaction are compared to the data. The isovector character of the 2(1)(+) state in O-20 is confirmed and predictions are discussed for the properties of the heavier neutron-rich oxygen isotopes. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science B.V.
