Abstract
We study the nonperturbative structure of the quark-photon vertex in Landau gauge. To this end, we utilize lattice QCD data for the vector current for two mass-degenerate quark flavours and extract all longitudinal and transverse form factors of the underlying vertex for two off-shell kinematics. The momentum dependence of the form factors is compared to the solution of the inhomogeneous Bethe-Salpeter equation for the vertex in the rainbow-ladder approximation. Differences but also similarities are seen between our lattice and the truncated continuum results.
