Title: Proton Skins, Neutron Skins, and Proton Radii of Mirror Nuclei

Abstract

Predictions are presented for proton skins based on isospin-asymmetric equations of state derived microscopically from high-precision chiral few-nucleon interactions. Moreover, the relation between the neutron skin of a nucleus and the difference between the proton radii of the corresponding mirror nuclei is investigated.
