The elastic scattering of 17F have been studied for different mass targets (e.g. 12C, 14N, 58Ni, 208Pb) at different energies. We used the double folding optical model potential based on the density-dependent DDM3Y effective nucleon-nucleon interaction. Both version of the density distribution of the one-proton halo 17F nucleus has been taken into account in the above mentioned potential. The data for angular distributions of the elastic scattering differential cross section and reaction cross sections has been successfully reproduced at different energies using the above potentials. The energy dependence and the target mass number dependence of scattering in the imaginary volume integrals and the total reaction cross sections has also been studied.
