Further analysis of α-particle emission from similar nuclei excited in neutron- as well as low-energy proton-induced reactions is involved concerning a possible difference between the optical model potentials (OMPs) which describe either alpha-particle elastic scattering and induced reactions or alpha-emission from excited compound nuclei. The key role of the pickup direct interaction is finally proved even at incident energies below ~10 MeV, as well as being eventually at the origin of the above-mentioned OMPs difference.
