Abstract

It is shown that core-polarization causes a considerable reduction of the nuclear magnetization current at high momentum transfer irrespective of multipolarity. The reduction is consistent with the observed reduction of both magnetic and transverse electric form factors in the 207Pb and 208Pb nuclei. No corresponding systematic reduction is expected in the nuclear convention current.
