Andrew— Thanks for that response to my question for Robin. Philippe will be interested. Maybe we can address this issue at the seminar in Fort Collins.

Bob, The experimentally-determined charge distribution of a neutron shows an outer "shell" of negative charge and thus the neutron should be polarizable. Had this been known early on, when the neutron was considered to be a proton + electron, I think the battle for that view would never have been lost and the result of relativistic-QM equations indicating deep-electron orbits would have been accepted 80 years ago. [The recently observed 'peak' in negative charge density at the very center of the neutron would result from the overlap of electron 'charge' density from the greater than nuclear-size deep-orbit electrons. Of course such musing of "nuclear electrons" is not allowed in publication because it would violate holy writ.] Andrew On Sun, Apr 22, 2018 at 10:41 PM, bobcook39...@hotmail.com<mailto:bobcook39...@hotmail.com> <bobcook39...@hotmail.com<mailto:bobcook39...@hotmail.com>> wrote: Robin I did not know neutrons have a negative (I assume negative electric field) and hence negative charge in any observable time frame. st there experimental evidence for this feature of a neutron?

However you are obviously trying to emphasize the fact that neutral particles should be difficult to accelerate using electrostatics only. That could be true, were it not for the fact that neutrons have a negative near field, and are in close proximity to many charged nucleons. Furthermore as you previously mentioned, the magnetic field probably also plays a role, perhaps even the dominant role. Regards, Robin van Spaandonk local asymmetry = temporary success
