Test of the Non Separability of the K°K̄° System

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


The p̄ annihilation at rest in liquid hydrogen in the K°K̄°channel gives essentially the KSKL decay mode. In this reaction, a possibility exists to test the non separability of this K°K̄° system, in its time evolution, as predicted by quantum mechanics. Some experimental prospects are studied in the context of the CERN LEAR facility.
