Angular distributions of elastically scattered alpha particles were measured for the 34S, 50Cr and 62Ni target nuclei in the energy range 12.8-20.0 MeV. The experimental data were analysed using the phenomenological optical model with the Saxon-Woods form factor; in the case of 34S the squared Saxon-Woods form factor was also applied. Phenomena such as the anomalous energy dependence of the potential near the Coulomb barrier, the discrete ambiguity problem, the low-mass and low-energy limit of applicability of the optical model are discussed using the real volume integral values obtained.
