Abstract : Elastic electron scattering studies from isotopes of calcium are briefly summarized. A study of the inelastic level structure of Ca40 and Ca48, as well as the quasi-elastic scattering from both isotopes was initiated. Preliminary results show the probable existence of excited levels or groups of levels previously unreported from electron scattering experiments. Especially interesting is the appearence of an 'edge' in the Ca40 spectrum beginning at an excitation energy of 15.7 MeV corresponding to the threshold of the state (Ca39 + n).
