Abstract : Phenomenological models of the ground state charge densities of the calcium isotopes Ca40,44,48 exhibit both an increase in the half-radius which is less than one would expect from a simple A exp. 1/3 estimate and an uneven variation in the skin thickness. A simple shell model of the nucleus with a Woods-Saxon potential is presented which can produce charge densities leading to electron scattering cross sections which agree with experiment as well as the phenomenological analyses. Strong closed shell effects are found in the parameters describing the potential half-radius and skin thickness. (Author)
