As a simulation of the nuclear structure calculation of the optical model potential, a set of coupled equations was solved, in which all the potentials (diagonal and inter-channel ) were real. The resulting S-Matrix elements were inverted to obtain a local, L-independent equivalent potential. The imaginary part of this potential was found to be mainly absorptive in the surface and emissive in the interior. The absorptive peak occurs in the region where the coupling potential is largest. The S-Matrix elements were well reproduced. The wave functions obtained from the equivalent local potentials are surprisingly close to those obtained from the coupled channel calculations. When an optical model of Woods-Saxon shape was searched the cross section, the imaginary part also was found to have emissive and absorptive components, similar to the potential obtained by inversion, but the corresponding S-Matrix elements for the low L-partial waves became unphysical, in that they had a magnitude larger than unity.
