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. 
Measurement of (anti)deuteron and (anti)proton production in DIS at HERA
The first observation of d(d) in ep collisions in the DIS regime at HERA is presented. The production rate of d(d) is smaller than that for p(p) by three orders of magnitude, which is in broadExpand
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 theExpand
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-nucleonExpand
Production of d, t, 3He, d, t and 3He by 200 GeV protons
Abstract Data are presented on the yields of d, t, 3He, d , t and 3 He with laboratory momenta between 12 and 37 GeV/c produced by 200 GeV protons on beryllium and aluminium. The production yield ofExpand
Antinuclei in Heavy-Ion Collisions
Abstract We review progress in the study of antinuclei, starting from Dirac’s equation and the discovery of the positron in cosmic-ray events. The development of proton accelerators led to theExpand
Production of antimatter 5,6Li nuclei in central Au+Au collisions at sNN=200 GeV
Abstract Combining the covariant coalescence model and a blast-wave-like analytical parametrization for (anti-)nucleon phase–space freezeout configuration, we explore light (anti-)nucleus productionExpand
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 theExpand
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 newExpand
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 antineutronsExpand
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. Expand


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 ofExpand
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.Expand
A threshold gas Čerenkov counter
Abstract This note describes a type of conventional threshold gas Cerenkov counter, particularly well adapted for the use in high-energy beams. A very simple method has been found to obtain the bestExpand
