Electric and magnetic polarizability of the nucleon in the MIT bag model

Published

Journal Article

The electric and magnetic polarizabilities of the proton and neutron are calculated in the framework of the MIT bag model. Neglecting vacuum-polarization we get αp = αn = 10.8 × 10-4 fm3, βp = 2.3 × 10-4 fm3 and βn = 1.5 × 10-4 fm3, in good agreement with experiment. The difficulties in treating the vacuum-polarization consistenly are discussed. It is argued that the polarizabilities may offer a possibility to measure the effective size of nucleon bags inside of nuclei. © 1984.
