The inclusive pion inelastic scattering and true absorption cross sections on 16O and 18O were measured at 165 MeV for π± and at 315 MeV for π+. The results show large effects of the two neutrons in 18O on the absorption and inelastic scattering cross sections at the resonance energy. In particular, the inelastic scattering of π+ from 18O is considerably smaller than from 16O and this effect is attributed to the coupling between the reaction channels.
