## Abstract

High-accuracy measurements of A_{y}(θ) data for elastic scattering for n+^{209}Bi have been performed at 6 and 9 MeV. The data are incorporated into a large database of σ(θ), A_{y}(θ), and σ_{T} for n+^{209}Bi covering the energy range 1.0-80 MeV. A complementary database is constructed for n+^{208}Pb and a dispersive optical-model analysis is performed for both scattering systems while constraining many of the parameters to be identical for both systems. A good representation of both databases is obtained with conventional geometry and spin-orbit parameters. The ^{208}Pb model predicts quite well the measured energies of valence single-particle and single-hole bound states. Occupation probabilities and spectroscopic factors for the same bound states are also calculated. Finally, a fully constrained model is presented in which the only differences between the n+^{208}Pb and the n+^{209}Bi systems are the Fermi energy and the isospin dependence in the real volume potential.
