"A measurement of two-photon exchange in unpolarized elastic electron-proton scattering"
 Slideshow (PDF)

Jefferson Lab experiment E05-017 was designed to study 2-photon exchange contributions to elastic electron-proton scattering over a wide kinematic range. By detecting the scattered proton instead of the electron these measurements will be very sensitive to the epsilon dependence of the cross section and consequently the ratio of the electromagnetic form factors. The goals of the experiment, the experimental technique and the kinematic range will be presented. The analysis sequence and results of the early steps will be outlined.
