Study of the Proton Electromagnetic Form-Factors

Space-Like FFs: proton data

Time-Like FFs: proton data

  • JLab results dramatically changed picture of the Nucleon:
    • GEp/GMp decreases with Q2
    • data suggest GEpcrosses 0 at Q28 GeV2

Expected Q2 behaviour reached quite early, however ...

... there is still a factor of 2

between timelike and spacelike.

Additional and more precise measurements needed

Polarized Antiprotons

double polarized pbar p annihilation
Double polarized pbar-p annihilation:

E. Tomasi, F. Lacroix, C. Duterte, G.I. Gakh, EPJA 24, 419(2005)

  • Most contain moduli GE, GM
    • Independent GE-GM separation
    • Test of Rosenbluth separation in the time-like region
  • Access to GE-GM phase
  • Very sensitive to different models
