Abstract

The s dependence of the electromagnetic proton form factors in the time-like region has been determined from the threshold (s = 4M(p)2) up to s = 4.2 GeV2. Data were collected in a dedicated experiment performed at the LEAR antiproton ring at CERN, increasing by one order of magnitude the available statistics. Total and differential cross section of the ppBAR --> e-e+ reaction have been measured. The electric and magnetic form factors are found to have comparable value. The observed form factor shows a clear steep s dependence close to the threshold.
