What's New with the Neutron and Proton

Gerald A. Miller, Anthony W. Thomas, Jonathan D. Carroll, Johann Rafelski

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The existence and importance of the proton radius puzzle, observed via a Lamb shift measurement in muonic atoms, is discussed. Possible resolutions of the puzzle are discussed. Then the broader question of the meaning of the proton radius is addressed and examples of correctly defined charge densities are presented.
