Microscopic relativistic optical potentials have been calculated for closed shell nuclei at energies near 200 MeV. These calculations go beyond the simple RIA by resolving ambiguities in the relativistic NN amplitudes and including Pauli blocking corrections.

The calculations quantitatively reproduce all measured elastic spin observables (both Ay and Q) for closed shell nuclei at energies near 200 MeV. It remains to be seen how unique this good description is. Further nonrelativistic work to compare with this relativistic approach would be very useful.
