Title: Two-photon exchange on the neutron and the hyperfine splitting

Abstract

We calculate the contribution from the two-photon exchange on the neutron to the hyperfine splitting of S energy levels. We update the value of the neutron Zemach radius and estimate total recoil and polarizability corrections. Here, the resulting two-photon exchange in electronic atoms exceeds by an order of magnitude the leading Zemach term and has different sign both in electronic and muonic hydrogen.
