The most challenging problem within the Standard Model is to understand how elementary particles build up composite hadrons. The electromagnetic nucleon transition form factors (TFFs) provide a way to understand the structure of the nucleon and its excitations. When a nucleon is probed electromagnetically, the process is dominated at high energies by the three-quark configuration thanks to asymptotic freedom. However, at low energies, the TFFs of nucleons are not well understood by the approaches based on quark-gluon degrees of freedom (lattice QCD, Dyson-Schwinger equations, QCD sum rules). At low energies, i.e. large distances, the process is dominated by pion-baryon fluctuations since pions are the lightest hadrons. In total, the nucleon state and its excitations have overlap with three-quark field configurations and with pion-baryon field configurations. My project contributes to the understanding of this multilayer picture of the nucleon.
