The experimental data of the elastic scattering angular distribution of 17F+12C at 170 MeV is analyzed by the continuum-discretized coupled channels (CDCC) method and the optical model (OM). In the CDCC calculation, the unambiguous optical potential of 16O+12C is used as the input to give the coupling potentials. A very refractive feature is found and two evident Airy minima are predicted at large angles. The one-channel calculation is also performed and gives nearly the same result. In the OM calculations, this optical potential of 16O+12C is used again and adjusted to reproduce the angular distribution of 17F+12C. The Airy oscillation appears again in the calculated angular distribution. These results indicate that the elastic scattering of 17F+12C at 170 MeV has the possibility of the nuclear rainbow phenomenon, which is probably due to the contribution from the 16O core.
