The total (p, n) reaction cross section for 48Ca has been measured as a function of proton energy in the energy range 1.885 to 5.100 MeV with an overall resolution of ~2 keV and in ~5 keV energy steps. The fluctutions in fine resolution data have been analysed to determine the average coherence width (Γ). The excitation function averaged over large energy intervals has been analyzed in terms of the optical model. The isobaric analogue resonances at Ep ~1.95 and 4 MeV have been shape-analyzed to extract the proton partial width and the spectroscopic factor Sn. A comparison of the gross structures observed in ~55 keV averaged excitation function with the predictions of Izumo's partial equilibrium model has also been made.
