First measurement of proton's charge form factor at very low $Q^2$ with initial state radiation

Abstract : We report on a new experimental method based on initial-state radiation (ISR) in e – p scattering, which exploits the radiative tail of the elastic peak to study the properties of electromagnetic processes and to extract the proton charge form factor ( GEp ) at extremely small Q2 . The ISR technique was implemented in an experiment at the three-spectrometer facility of the Mainz Microtron (MAMI). This led to a precise validation of radiative corrections far away from elastic line and provided first measurements of GEp for 0.001≤Q2≤0.004(GeV/c)2 .
