SummaryThe results of an experiment which show the existence of antideuterons in the production process proton-beryllium are reported.RiassuntoSi riportano i risultati di un esperimento che dimostrano l’esistenza degli antideutoni nel processo di produzione protone-berillio. 

The mechanisms of antihydrogen formationThis paper was presented at the International Conference on Precision Physics of Simple Atomic Systems, held at University of Windsor, Windsor, Ontario, Canada on 21–26 July 2008.

Some years have passed since the report of the first production of cold antihydrogen by the Athena Collaboration and the Atrap Collaboration at CERN, but no clear answer has been given about the

Antiproton Physics

We review the physics of low-energy antiprotons, and its link with the nuclear forces. This includes: antinucleon scattering on nucleons and nuclei, antiprotonic atoms, and antinucleon-nucleon

Antinuclei in heavy-ion collisions

Determination of the Cosmic Antideuteron Flux in a Monte Carlo approach

We investigate in this paper the antideuteron flux produced in high energy collisions of cosmic rays with the interstellar matter. We employ the Monte Carlo generator DPMJET-III together with the

John Bell and the Ten Challenges of Subnuclear Physics

The contribution of John Bell to the furtherance of experimental physics and our physics technologies is reviewed in order to acknowledge the value of a great theoretical physicist in supporting new

Observation of the antimatter helium-4 nucleus

The α-particle — the helium nucleus consisting of two protons and two neutrons — was identified a century ago by Ernest Rutherford. Its antimatter counterpart of two antiprotons and two antineutrons

Observation of the antimatter helium-4 nucleus

The observation of the antimatter helium-4 nucleus, the heaviest observed antinucleus to date, is reported, providing an indication of the production rate of even heavier antimatter nuclei and a benchmark for possible future observations of in cosmic radiation.



Production of antideuterons, light nuclei and hyperfragments in high-energy pp-collisions

SummaryUsing the statistical theory of particle production the partial cross-sections for the creation of antideuterons, light nuclei and hyperfragments are calculated. Rough estimates of

A high-intensity, partially separated, beam of antiprotons and K-mesons

SummaryA beam of small production angle and large acceptance has been designed at the CERN Proton Synchrotron in order to yield partially separated, high-intensity beams of antiprotons and K-mesons.
