Antiproton-carbon elastic and inelastic scattering cross sections have been measured at 46.8 MeV over an angular range 6° ≤ θ ≤ 59° with a magnetic spectrometer. Fits to the elastic and inelastic 4.44 MeV excited state cross sections put realistic limits on the strengths of the real and imaginary parts of the antiproton-carbon optical potential. The continuum cross section due to carbon break-up appears to be smaller than it is for corresponding proton data.
