Are protons nonidentical fermions?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We briefly review the progress of our investigation on the electric (charge) radius of the proton. In order to explain the recently measured proton radius, which is significantly smaller than the standard CODATA value, we assume that the real protons radii are not identical, they are randomly distributed in a certain range. To obtain the measured radius we average the radii and fit both the mean radius and the range. By using an averaged dipole form factor we obtain the charge radius rE = 0.8333 fm, in accordance with the recent measurement of the Lamb shift in muonic hydrogen.
