The neutron-skin thickness in 208Pb was determined by measuring the cross section of the isovector giant dipole resonance (GDR) in inelastic scattering of 196 MeV α-particles. From the comparison of measured and calculated cross sections the relative difference of proton and neutron distribution radii (ΔRPN/R0) was deduced to be 2.2°1.2%.
