Polarized Antiprotons from Antihydrogen

Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 31)


Beams of polarized antiprotons are continuously requested by intermediate and high-energy physicists. As in the nucleon-nucleon system, spin observables play a key role also for the antinucleon-nucleon system. In the latter case the study of these observables is even more important since the Pauli principle, which reduces the number of independent amplitudes in the NN system, does not apply here. An urgent search for a method of polarizing antiprotons is going on.
