Abstract : The differential cross section for scattering of highenergy electrons (E = 200 MeV) from partially aligned non-spherical nuclei is calculated. The nuclei are represented by the Bohr-Mottelson model in the strong coupling limit, and the cross section calculated by the distorted wave treatment of electron scattering. Analysis of the (measured) cross section for nonaligned 181Ta gives an intrinsic quadrupole moment of 7 b (comparable with other measurements). The expected dependence of the cross section on the direction and degree of alignment of a similar nucleus (165Ho) is discussed. In particular, for 50% alignment of 165Ho perpendicular to the incident beam, the cross section should display measurable azimuthal asymmetry. (Author)
