Coherent elastic neutrinonucleus scattering on ${}^{40}\mathrm{Ar}$ from first principles
Abstract
Coherent elastic neutrino scattering on the 40Ar nucleus is computed with coupledcluster theory based on nuclear Hamiltonians inspired by effective field theories of quantum chromodynamics. Our approach is validated by calculating the charge form factor and comparing it to data from electron scattering. We make predictions for the weak form factor, the neutron radius, and the neutron skin and estimate systematic uncertainties. The neutronskin thickness of 40Ar is consistent with results from densityfunctional theory. Precision measurements from coherent elastic neutrinonucleus scattering could potentially be used to extract these observables and help to constrain nuclear models.
