Electromagnetic form factors of the bound nucleon

By D. Lu, K. Saito, A. Thomas, K. Tsushima and A. Williams


We calculate electromagnetic form factors of the proton bound in specified orbits for several closed-shell nuclei. The shell structure of the finite nuclei, together with the internal quark substructure of the nucleon, are self-consistently described by the quark-meson-coupling model. We find that the medium-modified electric and magnetic form factors of the bound nucleon deviate considerably from those of the free nucleon. Our results suggest that this medium correction on the nucleon’s quark substructure may be detectable in forthcoming quasielastic electron-nucleus scattering.D. H. Lu, K. Tsushima, A. W. Thomas, A.
