X-Ray Spectroscopy of p̄ Hydrogen in the Cyclotron Trap

Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 17)


The experiments done so far to detect protonium (p̄p) X-rays suffered from the very poor p̄-fluxes. For this reason low density gas targets were not used, which are essential to avoid Stark mixing and consequently get sufficient yields to study the strong interaction effects in the low lying levels of the p̄p cascade. Up to now in a sophisticated experiment the protonium L-series in hydrogen gas at 4 atm could be discovered1.
