We investigate the nuclear structure and elastic scattering in nuclei (20Ne, 44Ti, 94Mo, and 212Po) using a model of alpha-cluster orbiting a closed shell core. A purely phenomenological cluster-core potential was found to provide a successful description of low lying positive parity spectra, electromagnetic transition strengths of these nuclei and alpha-decay rates of these states in 212Po. We then consider the same phenomenological potential as the real part of optical model to describe the differential elastic scattering cross-sections for the systems corresponding to 20Ne=16O+alpha, 44Ti=40Ca+alpha, 94Mo=90Zr+alpha, 212Po=208Pb+alpha.
