Difference in proton radii of mirror nuclei as a possible surrogate for the neutron skin

Difference in proton radii of mirror nuclei as a possible surrogate for the neutron skin
Junjie Yang, J. Piekarewicz
It has recently been suggested that differences in the charge radii of mirror nuclei are proportional to the neutron-skin thickness of neutron-rich nuclei and to the slope of the symmetry energy $L$ [Brown, Phys. Rev. Lett. 102, 122502 (2009)]. The determination of the neutron skin has important imp...
