The production, collection and deceleration of antiprotons is reviewed with the aim of establishing guidelines for the design of a simple yet efficient source of stopped antiprotons. A high-energy (20–100 GeV) high-intensity (∼1013 protons/pulse) proton accelerator is needed to produce antiprotons in copious numbers. A “passive” conversion-target consisting of a thin iridium rod embedded in graphite, and a magnetic-horn type lens to collect the antiproton flux from the target represent a good… 
Plans for a Next-Generation Low-Energy Antiproton Facility
Current antiproton physics as carried out at the Antiproton Decelerator (AD) of CERN is focussed on precision spectroscopy of antiprotonic atoms and antihydrogen for tests of CPT symmetry and QED.
Ultra-low energy antihydrogen
The study of CPT invariance with the highest achievable precision in all particle sectors is of fundamental importance for physics. Equally important is the question of the gravitational acceleration
Possible hydrogen, anti-hydrogen beams production in a long linear vacuum pipe
This paper presents the possible production of hydrogen and anti-hydrogen from pand ebeams merged in a long vacuum chamber (about 2500 m). In such a configuration with a beam kinetic energy for the
Comprehensive Study for an Optimized Redesign of the CERN's Antiproton Decelerator Target
The Antiproton Decelerator Target (AD-Target) is a unique device responsible for the production of antiprotons at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). During operation, intense 26
Antiprotonic helium and CPT invariance
We review recent progress in the laser and microwave spectroscopy of antiprotonic helium atoms carried out at CERN's Antiproton Decelerator facility (AD). Laser transitions were here induced between

The field of cold antimatter physics has rapidly developed in the last 20 years, overlapping with the period of the Antiproton Decelerator (AD) at CERN. The central subjects are CPT symmetry tests
Storage rings for fast cooling of antiproton and radioactive ion beams
Production, fast cooling, and accumulation of intense secondary beams, antiprotons and rare isotopes, are key issues of the new accelerator facility proposed for GSI. Single primary bunches of
