1 | Institut für Kernphysik | Project C2 | Inna Pysmenetska | 1 Precision Measurement of the Proton Charge Radius with Elastic Electron Scattering* SFB 634 P. von Neumann-Cosel, I. Pysmenetska, S. Rathi, A. Richter, G. Schrieder and A. Shevchenko *Supported by the DFG within SFB 634  Motivation  Experimental technique  Measured spectra  Results  Summary and Outlook

2 | Institut für Kernphysik | Project C2 | Inna Pysmenetska | 2 Motivation  proton radius fundamental quantity in physics important for nuclear theory  recent Lamb shift measurements as a test of QED theory limited by higher order corrections, which depend on R p

3 | Institut für Kernphysik | Project C2 | Inna Pysmenetska | 3 Measuring Method

4 | Institut für Kernphysik | Project C2 | Inna Pysmenetska | 4 Previous Results

5 | Institut für Kernphysik | Project C2 | Inna Pysmenetska | 5 New Idea: Detect Protons and not Electrons! q = ( fm -1 ) in a single run  avoid difficult normalization  complete angular distribution  measured simultaneously  precise definition of solid angle  Rosenbluth separation  proton detection efficiency is ~1
