Could Antiprotons be Used to Get a Hot, Dense Plasma?
It is well known that the developments in experimental technique dictated by the needs of Nuclear physics have often resulted in some applications in other fields of science. For instance, Nuclear reactors are exploited intensively now by solid-state physicists. Meson factories are also attracting attention as very useful tools for solid-state physics, chemistry, and medicine. A remarkable evolution can be observed in electrostatic tandem generators which are used as mass spectrometers. Here, for example, a further success was achieved in C dating with implications for other isotopes.
