  • Elastic electron scattering cross sections have been measured for 205Tl and 206Pb at an incident energy of 502 MeV, covering a momentum transfer range from 1.4 to 3.2 fm-1. The charge density difference of the two isotones is accurately determined. We show that the shape of the 3s proton orbit can be extracted from this difference without ambiguity. The experimental shape is compared to mean field theory predictions. © 1983.
