Abstract

An atomic system consisting of a nucleus, an antiproton and no or one electron is a simple quantum mechanical system. The production of anti-protonic atoms in this ideal state would allow the study of numerous phenomena: for example, the polarizability of the antiproton due to the very strong electric field of the nucleus1, QED-corrections to the electron binding energy in an one-electron-system2,3, or the selective refilling of electrons from neighbouring atoms.
