Possibilities of Experiments to Measure Neutron-Antineutron Mixing
The neutron and antineutron have quantum numbers which differ only by the baryon number. The masses are believed to be identical, but they can be separated by a magnetic field which will act in opposite ways on the neutron and antineutron magnetic moments and in ordinary matter by the differences between the neutron-nucleus potential and antineutron-nucleus potential.
