Sažetak
Information on the size and shape of the neutron skin on 208Pb is extracted from coherent pion photoproduction cross sections measured using the Crystal Ball detector together with the Glasgow tagger at the MAMI electron beam facility. On exploitation of an interpolated fit of a theoretical model to the measured cross sections the half-height radius and diffuseness of the neutron distribution are found to be cn=6.70±0.03(stat.)fm and an=0.55±0.01(stat.)+0.02−0.03(sys.)fm respectively, corresponding to a neutron skin thickness ∆r(np)=0.15±0.03(stat.)+0.01−0.03(sys.)fm. The results give the first successful extraction of a neutron skin thickness with an electromagnetic probe and indicate that the skin of 208Pb has a halo character. The measurement provides valuable new constraints on both the structure of nuclei and the equation of state for neutron rich matter.
