The disagreement between the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen and from electronic measurements is called the proton radius puzzle. The resolution of the puzzle remains unclear and appears to require new experimental results. An experiment to measure muon-proton elastic scattering is presented here.

    It is shown that the emergence of a condensate fraction in a gas confined in a trap leads to a sharp increase in the intensity of elastic scattering (scattering not accompanied by a change in the quantum numbers describing the motion of gas atoms in the trap) of light. Under typical experimental...

    The analysing power AN is examined in the range of the Coulomb-hadron interference on the basis of the experimental data from p L = 6 GeV/ c up to 200 GeV/ c taking account of a phenomenological analysis at p L = 6 GeV/ c and a dynamic high-energy spin model. The results are compared with the...

    The study of charge asymmetry of pions in the high-energy process ep → eπ+π- p (γ p → π+π- p) at very small dipion momenta offers a method to measure the phase of the forward hadronic (quasi-) elastic amplitude γ p → ρ p. We estimate the potential of...

    We present the data on pp[overbar] elastic scattering at 52.6 GeV and 1.8/1.96 TeV analysed in terms of amplitudes, showing explicitly their magnitudes, signs and zeros as function of |t|. We show that a term representing the three-gluon exchange contribution creates a dip at large |t| ≈...
