17Ne is one of the candidates for a proton-halo nucleus. In order to make the halo structure of 17Ne clear, we studied the density distribution of 17Ne through the reaction cross sections σR. As a consequence, it is suggested from σR data that 17Ne has a long tail in the density, which is consistent with an occupancy of the 2s1/2 orbital by the two valence protons.
