We explore the possibility that a new interaction between muons and protons is responsible for the discrepancy between the CODATA value of the proton-radius and the value deduced from the measurement of the Lamb shift in muonic hydrogen. We show that a new force carrier with roughly MeV-mass can account for the observed energy-shift as well as the discrepancy in the muon anomalous magnetic moment. However, measurements in other systems constrain the couplings to electrons and neutrons to be… Expand
