Exploring the Nucleon Structure via Electron Scattering Experiments at Large-Distance Scales

PHY Seminar

Abstract: The nucleon is a cornerstone in nature, accounting for approximately 99% of the visible matter in the Universe. Although we know the fundamental constituents of the nucleon, quarks and gluons, we are still challenged in decoding their dynamics which give rise to its ground state and properties. Electron scattering experiments at large-distance (low-Q2) scales provide access to some of the system’s fundamental properties and allow to study the interplay of the underlying degrees of freedom across the different energy scales. In this talk, I will discuss the progress on properties such as the neutron and the proton charge radius, the nucleon’s excited state and its generalized polarizabilities, with an emphasis on recent results and future prospects.
