Deuteron elastic scattering at 400 MeV is analyzed with the coupled-channel method to treat the deuteron breakup process. Substantial improvement over the single-folding optical model is obtained in the fit to the experimental cross section. Wine-bottle shaped nucleon optical potentials are superior to Woods-Saxon ones for the deuteron scattering, while both types of potentials reproduce proton-scattering data equally well.
