Production of and Experimentation with Antihydrogen at LEAR
Since its early days the LEAR project has been accompanied by suggestions to use the cooled antiprotons for the formation of anti-hydrogen atoms (see also [Bu77, Bu78]). In this paper we will discuss in some detail formation of antihydrogen via radiative capture of positrons by antiprotons in flight: Which requirements to a positron beam have to be fulfilled to obtain a sufficient number of antihydrogen atoms for experimentation, how can these requirements be met, what kind of experiments can be done with the resulting antihydrogen beam?
