Abstract

The pion form factor has been measured in the space-like q2 region 0.014 to 0.26 (GeV/c)2 by scattering 300 GeV pions from the electrons of a liquid hydrogen target. A detailed description is given of the apparatus, data analysis and corrections to the data. The mean square charge radius extracted from the data is model-dependent. We find that a form which includes a realistic description of the form factor phase gives a similar results to the naive pole form, and conclude 〈r2π〉 = 0.438±0.008 fm2.
