Iddings, Carl (1960) Nuclear size corrections to the hyperfine structure of hydrogen. Dissertation (Ph.D.), California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd-06202006-084058
This thesis is a calculation of the energy shift in the hyperfine structure of atomic H due to the finite size of the proton. We use experimental data of Hofstadter to determine the size of the proton and we find that the measured value of the hyperfine structure is in slight disagreement with our predicted value. Possible reasons for this are investigated.
