Differential cross sections and analyzing powers were measured for the inelastic scattering of 160-MeV polarized protons over the angular range 649.5. The spectra covered excitation energies up to about 11 MeV in Ca48. Angular distributions and analyzing powers were determined for 28 separate peaks. The data are compared to distorted-wave impulse approximation calculations and spin assignments are suggested for many of the states. The resulting level diagram is compared to three different shell model calculations of the Ca48 spectrum.
