Title: Two-photon exchange corrections to the pion form factor

Abstract

Here, we compute two-photon exchange corrections to the electromagnetic form factor of the pion, taking into account the finite size of the pion. Compared to the soft-photon approximation for the infrared divergent contribution which neglects hadron structure effects, the corrections are found to be ≲ 1% for small Q 2 (Q 2 < 0.1 GeV 2), but increase to several percent for Q 2 ≳ 1 GeV 2 at extreme backward angles.
