Production of hypothetical X0-mesons in high-energy channeling reactions
The narrow, correlated e + e − line structures observed in heavy ion collisions near the Coulomb barrier still long for an convincing explanation . A possible interpretation of the experiments is the pair-decay of a yet unknown neutral particle X 0 with a mass of about 1.8 MeV. However, is now clear that the X 0 cannot be an elementary particle, but an extended object with internal structure has not been ruled out . Recently a model for a mesonlike X 0 particle consisting of two elementary charged fermions f + and f − has been proposed . This model describes many features of the experimental data., including a quantitative estimate of the measured cross sections. Therefore it would be usefull if the exsistence of these exotic particles could be confirmed by different experiments.
