Positron creation in crossed-beam collisions of high-energy, fully stripped heavy ions is investigated within the coupled-channel formalism. In comparison with fixed-target collisions of highly stripped heavy-ion projectiles positron production probabilities are enhanced by more than one order of magnitude. The increase results from the possibility to excite electrons from the negative energy continuum into all bound states. The positron spectrum is shifted towards higher energies because of… Expand

How to Observe the Vacuum Decay in Low-Energy Heavy-Ion Collisions.
TLDR
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
Positron production in collision of heavy nuclei
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 ofExpand
