Abstract.We consider the electromagnetic production of positron in the collision of slow heavy nuclei, with the simultaneously produced electron captured by one of the nuclei. The cross-section of the discussed process exceeds essentially the cross-section of $e^{+}e^{-}$e+e- production.

It is shown that the vacuum decay can nevertheless be observed via impact-sensitive measurements of pair-production probabilities and the possibility of such an observation is demonstrated using numerical calculations of pair production in low-energy collisions of heavy nuclei. Expand
