  1. Update on the proton radius puzzle: What electron (and muon) scattering can tell us about the proton radius John Arrington, Argonne National Laboratory 2013 JLab Users Meeting, May 29-31, Jefferson Lab

  2. Electron scattering Powerful and versatile tool, long history of probing proton structure High energy scattering resolves small scale structure: quark and gluons Low energy scattering reveals large scale structure: Charge radius Graphic by Joshua Rubin, Argonne National Laboratory

  3. New techniques: Polarization and A(e,e’N) • Mid ’90s brought measurements using improved techniques • High luminosity, highly polarized electron beams • Polarized targets (1H, 2H, 3He) or recoil polarimeters • Large, efficient neutron detectors for 2H, 3He(e,e’n) Unpol: tGM2+eGE2 Pol:GE/GM Polarized 3He target BLAST at MIT-Bates Focal plane polarimeter – Jefferson Lab

  4. Polarization vs. Rosenbluth: GE/GM mpGEp/GMp from Rosenbluth measurements New data: Recoil polarization and p(e,p) “Super-Rosenbluth” Slope from recoil polarization JLab Hall A: M. Jones, et al.; O. Gayou, et al. I. A. Qattan, et al, PRL 94, 142301 (2005)

  5. Two Photon Exchange Golden mode:positron-proton vs. electron-proton elastic scattering Existing data show evidence for TPE contributions that could explain the discrepancy Signal for non-zero TPE is only at 3s level JA, PRC 69, 032201 (2004) IF TPE fully explains discrepancy, then they are constrained well enough that they do not limit our extractions of the high-Q2 form factors • Three new e+/e- experiments run: • BINP Novosibirsk – internal target • JLab Hall B – LH2 target, CLAS (2012) • DESY (OLYMPUS) - internal target

  6. Proton Charge Radius Extractions: 2010-2013 Two new charge/magnetic radii extracted from electron scattering • J. Bernauer, et al., PRL 105 (2010) 242001 • X. Zhan, et al., PLB 705 (2011) 59 Lamb shift from muonic hydrogen R. Pohl, et al. Nature 466, 213-217 (2010) A. Antognini, et al., Science 339 (2013) 417

  7. Finite-size effects in atomic physics E • Finite radius  level shifts Measurement of levels/transitions  measure nuclear size: • - Lamb shift: sensitive to rE(r) • Leading size correction ~ <rE2> • Smaller “shape” corrections ~ <rE3> • - Hyperfine splitting: • Sensitive to both rE(r) and rM(r) - Field (volume) shift between two nuclei: r p V ~ - 1/r s Finite size correction: time spent inside the nucleus

  8. Proton Charge Radius Muon Electron Further test and improve electron scattering results Spectroscopy Scattering

  9. Challenges in extracting the proton radius • Radius defined as slope of GE(Q2) at Q2=0 • Need to understand any small changesthat occur as the beam energy and scattering angles change • Need to apply correction for small angle-independent part ( GM2 ) • Need to control extrapolation to Q2=0 • Need to correct for Coulomb effects/two-photon exchange • Some proposed explanations (that can be tested) • Structure in GE that modified extrapolation • Difference in TPE contributions for muon, electron cases

  10. Charge and Magnetic Radii RE • E00-008 Phase-I (recoil polarization) • ~1% extraction of GEp/GMp, 0.3-0.8 GeV2 • Smaller TPE corrections than in s • Global fit with TPE: RE = 0.875(10) fm • Precise ratios help fix normalizations when combining multiple data sets X. Zhan, et al., PLB 705, 59 (2011) RM

  11. Fitting issues Linear fit to a dipole form factor always underestimates radius Need Q2 lever-arm to get slope Need to limit Q2 to avoid data that’s insensitive to the radius Need to have fit function with enough flexibility to match data in your Q2 range Dipole Linear fit Linear fit works well up to Q2  0.02, but fit function mismatch error dominates (~2%) Quadratic fit works well up to Q2  0.1 before “truncation error” dominates (~1.2%) Cubic fit works well up to Q2  0.3 before truncation error dominates (~1.1%) Based on assumption of dipole form, ten 1% measurements from Q2 = 0 to Q2max

  12. Fitting issues: Magnetic radius JA, W. Melnitchouk, J. Tjon, PRC 76, 035205 (2007) • Cross section sensitivity to GM decreases at low Q2 • Sensitive to q-dependent effects • Extrapolation more difficult • Fits can be dominated by precise high-Q2 extractions • Better low-Q2 GM data important: Phase-II of E08-007 (2012) • 1-2% on ratio down to 0.015 GeV2

  13. JA , PRL 107, 119101; J.Bernauer, et al., PRL 107, 119102 Impact of TPE Apply low-Q2 TPE expansion, valid up to Q2=0.1 GeV2 Small change, but still larger than total quoted uncertainty Main impact is on GM Borisyuk/Kobushkin, PRC 75, 028203 (2007) RADII: <rM2>1/2 goes from 0.777(17) to 0.803(17) fm [+3.0%, ~1.5 sigma] <rE2>1/2 goes from 0.879(8) to 0.876(8) fm [-0.3%, <0.5 sigma] Helps resolve discrepancy in magnetic radius, minimal impact on charge radius Note: quoted uncertainties do not include any contribution related to TPE A1 collab. argues that these are extremely large, TPE very poorly understood

  14. Uncertainty in low Q2 TPE calculations? Blunden, Melnitchouk, Tjon, hadronic calculation [PRC 72, 034612 (2005)] Borisyuk & Kobushkin: Low-Q2 expansion, valid up to 0.1 GeV2[PRC 75, 038202 (2007)] B&K: Dispersion analysis (proton only) [PRC 78, 025208 (2008)] B&K: proton + D[arXiv:1206.0155] B&K proton only: (same as Blunden) Full TPE calculations JA, arXiv:1210.2677

  15. Additional Corrections?[JA, arXiv:1210.2677] 2nd Born • Effective Momentum Approximation • Coulomb potential boosts energy at scattering vertex • Flux factor enhancement • Used in QE scattering (Coulomb field of nucleus) • Key parameter: average e-p separation at the scattering • ~1.6 MeV at surface of proton • Decreases as 1/R outside proton • Assume scattering occurs at R = 1/q • Limits correction below Q20.06 GeV2 where scattering away from proton EMA

  16. Additional Corrections? EMA • Very little effect at high e ; no impact on charge radius • Large Q2 dependence at low e • Proton radius: slope  -600%/GeV2 • 0-0.02 GeV2: CC slope  +100%/GeV2 • 0.05-0.2 GeV2: slope  -8%/GeV2 • Higher e: up to ~15%/GeV2 • Couldimpact extraction of RM • Need more detailed calculation EMA e= 0.02

  17. Proton magnetic radius • Updated TPE yields DRM=0.026 fm 0.777(17)  0.803(17) • If more parameters required for RM, could further increase radius • Mainz/JLab difference goes from 3.4s to ~2s or less, further reduced if include TPE uncertainty • RE value almost unchanged Sick (2003) Bernauer, et al. (2010) Zhan, et al., (2010) Antognini, et al., (2013)

  18. Future low-Q2 form factor measurements • Phase II of JLab polarization measurement (Hall A at JLab) • Provide important constraints on low-Q2 behavior of GM • Updated measurements at Mainz • Measurements at lower Q2 using Initial State Radiation (ISI) • Measure electron—deuteron scattering • Very low Q2 cross section measurements (Hall B at JLab) • Map out low-Q2 behavior of GE • Forward angle, nearly independent of GM • Low Q2 measurements of e±, m± scattering cross sections (PSI) • Map out low-Q2 behavior of GE • Compare Two-photon exchange for leptons and muons • Make direct e-m comparison

  19. Proton Radius RE • E00-008 Phase-I (recoil polarization) • ~1% extraction of GEp/GMp, 0.3-0.8 GeV2 • Global fit with TPE: RE = 0.875(10) fm • Smaller TPE corrections than in s • Precise ratios help fix normalizations when combining multiple data sets X. Zhan, et al., PLB 705, 59 (2011) RM • Phase-II (polarized target - 2012) • Extract R=GE/GM down to Q2 = 0.015 • Extract GM to 1-2% at very low Q2 • Improve RM (and RE) extractions • Improve calc. of hyperfine splitting • Continue linear approach to Q2=0 ? • RM approx. 3% smaller then RE • No region where magnetization, charge are simply sum of quarks

  20. New data from Mainz • Proton measurements at even lower energy using Initial State Radiation • Reduce extrapolation • Improved GM sensitivity • Deuteron measurements • Compare deuteron radius to muonic spectroscopy Both plan to begin data taking in 2013

  21. “PRAD” - Proton RADius in Hall B at Jefferson Lab First experiment in Hall B • – High energy beam, small scattering angle • Large calorimeter covers q = 0.7o to 4o • – Windowless gas target • No endcap scattering • – Normalize e-p to e-e scattering

  22. Separation of Elastic from Moller Events Overlap of Ee' spectra of radiated events Calorimeter detects good part of hard radiated photons

  23. Extraction of Proton Charge Radius • Linear fit yields dR=0.006 fm [0.7%] statistical uncertainty • Systematics comparable to high-Q2 statistics • Forward angle: negligible GM contribution, TPE corrections • Very low Q2 values (no extrapolation), all measured simultaneously

  24. PRAD++ ?? • Plan is to use inner calorimeter only (better position resolution) • Refurbishing full calorimeter gives more Q2 coverage at each energy • Better lever arm at 1.1 GeV • More overlap, systematics checks • More work, more manpower • Additional data at higher energy • Total rates in calorimeter go down • Rates for data (fixed Q2range) go up • Larger Q2 coverage in less time, but pushed to smaller angle • If systematics for data at smallest angles are a larger-than-expected issue, these data provide additional overlap/tests.

  25. “MUSE” - MUon Scattering Experiment [PSI] R. Gilman, et al., arXiv:1303.2160 e- target sci-fi array π-- e/p/m beams 0.115-0.210 MeV/c target channel sci-fi array μ- GEM chambers beam Cerenkov spectrometer chambers Note: Detector details not up to date spectrometer Cerenkov Beams of electrons, pions, and muons: Very low Q2 (reduced extrapolation) Compare e- and e+ (opposite Coulomb/TPE correction) Compare m- and m+ (compare electron/muon corrections) spectrometer trigger scintillators

  26. MUSE Radius Extractions Left: independent absolute extraction Right: extraction with only relative uncertainties TPE extraction in l+/l- comparison e-m comparison: 5s value for R(e)-R(m) if discrepancy persists

  27. e-μ Universality Ellsworth et al., form factors from elastic μp Several experiments compared e-p, μ-p interactions. No convincing differences, once the μp data are renormalized up about 10%. In light of the proton ``radius’’ puzzle, the experiments are not as good as one would like.

  30. Final check: e-μ universality, physics beyond SM Muon Electron MUSE: Start data taking in 2015 or 2016 Muon interaction different from electron??? Spectroscopy Scattering

  31. Fin…

  32. What happens when this program is finished? • Will yield improved understanding of our precision techniques • Might find experimental correction that is larger than we thought • Still leaves difference between electron and muon spectroscopy • Test and improve our calculations of electromagnetic interactions • Might show that some correction was larger than expected • Could highlight interesting physics or unusually large correction • Direct test of “electron-muon universality” • Most exciting and intriguing possibility • Ideas for “new physics” explanations being actively investigated

  33. Impact of low Q2 form factor measurements • Zemach moment: Comes from integral of [1-GE(Q2)GM(Q2)/mp]/ Q2 • 1/Q2 term suppresses high Q2 • [1-GE(Q2)GM(Q2)/mp] suppresses lowest Q2 • As GE, GM become small, [1-GE(Q2)GM(Q2)/mp] 1, and the form factor uncertainty has almost no impact on Zemach moment Phase I (complete) Phase II (2012) Significant contribution to integral above Q2=1 GeV2and below Q2=0.01 GeV2 Negligible contribution to uncertainty above Q2=1 GeV2

  34. Proton Charge Radius Muon Electron Further test and improve electron scattering results Fill in the muon scattering case Spectroscopy Scattering

  35. Where do we stand • Error in the muonic hydrogen measurement • Not much evidence or indication • Error in Rydberg constant • Still leaves inconsistency between Lamb shift and form factor measurements • Error in the QED corrections for the Lamb shift in hydrogen or muonic hydrogen • Everything has been checked, some very small changes • Higher order terms from charge distribution could change results but not resolve discrepancy • DeRujula resolves discrepancy with toy model of form factor, requires ~10% change in normalization of cross section data (dramatic dropoff from GE(0)=1 to lowest Q2 measurements) • No error: New physics? [V. Barger, et al., W. Marciano] • Violation of e-m universality • New particles which couple preferentially to muons • Heavy photon/Dark photon • Could also resolve g-2 problem, but modifies electronic and muonic hydrogen • Very light (1-10 MeV) scalar Higgs • Issues with neutron-Nuclei scattering • Future plans • Proposal for very low Q2 measurements at JLab (Q2 from 0.0001 to 0.01 GeV2) • Probably lower precision than global extractions, but free from the common model dependences • Muonic 2H, 3He, 4He

  36. JLab E08-007: Low Q2 Proton Form Factor • Phase-I (polarization transfer) • Phase-II (polarized target: Feb-may 2012) • Extract R down to Q20.01 (important for GM extraction) • Good overlap with Phase-I, using different technique • Lost to problems with target magnet (Q2>0.2), septum magnet (Q2>0.1) • Linear approach to Q2=0? • If so, no region where • magnetization, charge • are simply sum of quarks

  37. Fitting issues: Magnetic radius J.Bernauer, PhD Thesis Cross section sensitivity to GM decreases at low Q2 Extrapolation to Q2=0 is more difficult for magnetic radius GM more sensitive to angle-dependent effects at low Q2 Precise data at higher Q2 have more statistical power than the low Q2 data

  38. Weighted average: 0.777 Averaging of fits? “By eye” average of high-N fits • Limited precision on GM at low Q2 means that more parameters are needed to reproduce low Q2 data •  Low Nparfits may be less reliable • Statistics-weighted average of fits with different #/parameters •  Emphasizes small Npar • Expect fits with more parameters to be more reliable • Increase <rM>2 by ~0.020 • Increase “statistical” uncertainty • No visible effect in <RE>2

  39. Evaluating uncertainties: JLab global analysis • Fit directly to cross sections and polarization ratios • Limit fit to low Q2 data • Two-photon exchange corrections applied to cross sections • Estimate model uncertainty by varying fit function, cutoffs • Different parameterizations (continued fraction, inverse polynomial) • Vary number of parameters (2-5 each for GE and GM ) • Vary Q2 cutoff (0.3, 0.4, 0.5, 1.0) • Mainz does similar tests • Always fit full Q2range (up to ~1 GeV2) • More data allows for fit functions with 8-11 parameters for GE and GM P. G. Blunden, W. Melnitchouk, J. Tjon, PRC 72 (2005) 034612

  40. Low Q2 data: Mainz • ~1400 high-precision cross sections: • ~ 0.2% statistics • < 0.5% systematics • Wide range in q • Q2 up to 1 GeV2 • GE, GM obtained from global fit Q2 [GeV2] J. Bernauer, et al., PRL 105, 242001 (2010)

  41. Comparison to Muonic Hydrogen MAINZ: <RE2>1/2 = 0.879(80) <RM2>1/2 = 0.777(170) Muonic Hydrogen: <RE2>1/2 = 0.8409(4) RMS charge (magnetization) radius related to the slope of GE (GM) at Q2=0: GE(Q2) ~ 1 – 1/6 Q2<R2> + …

  42. Two-photon exchange corrections QED+QCD: depends on proton internal structure QED: straightforward to calculate • Mainz analysis took Q2=0 limit of “2nd Born approximation” (structureless proton) • Applied 50% uncertainty in fit (no uncertainty for radius extraction) m m • 2nd Born approximation (Coulomb correction) has significant Q2 dependence at low Q2 • At these Q2 values, 2nd Born, full hadronic TPE, and low Q2 expansion of TPE are all in good agreement Q2=0 Q2=0.03 Q2=0.1 Q2=0.3 Q2=1 JA (Comment), PRL 107, 119101 J.
