Recoil polarimetry was used to extract the ratio of the proton electromagnetic form factors, μp GEp/ GMp = 0.878 ± 0.064(stat) ± 0.012(sys), at Q2 = 1.13 (GeV/c)2 from the reaction 1H(e, ep). This was an ancillary measurement in which the proton polarization was determined as part of a larger program utilizing a stand-alone polarimeter designed to measure μn GEn/GMn. This measurement complements previous recoil polarimetry measurements of μp GEp/GMp made at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility.
