Determination of the proton radiusand proton radius puzzle

Subject:Determination of the proton radiusand proton radius puzzle
Speaker:Prof Savely G. Karshenboim(Committee on Data for Science and Technology, Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics )
Time:10:00am,14th Jun.,2017
Place:1017 lecture hall,10F, M Building of Institute,WIPM


About the speaker:
2014 (till 31.10.16) scientist (E15) at Max-PlanckInstitut für Quantenoptik, Garching 2011-2014 scientist at Max-Planck-Institut Für Quantenoptik, Garching (a freelancer with honorarium agreement from Feb., 2011)
2015 (till Oct. 2016) Pulkovo observatory: Lead scientist (part time)

I will discuss the determination of the proton charge radius by different means including spectroscopy of hydrogen and deuterium, spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen and elastic electron-proton scattering. The most accurate result is from the measurement of the Lamb shift in muonic hydrogen and it is in contradiction with the results from ordinary hydrogen and scattering. I will review the situation and discuss the accuracy and reliability of the involved theory and experiment.
