This report reviews the achievements of the Crystal Barrel experiment at the Low Energy Antiproton Ring (LEAR) at CERN. During seven years of operation Crystal Barrel has collected very large statistical samples in pbarp annihilation, especially at rest and with emphasis on final states with high neutral multiplicity. The measured rates for annihilation into various two-body channels and for electromagnetic processes have been used to test simple models for the annihilation mechanism based on… 

Are narrow unflavoured mesons a signature of new physics

New data of narrow low mass unflavoured mesonic structures are presented. A table of these exotic masses is obtained adding previously published data. The mass sequence shows a significant coupling

Exotic Low Mass Unflavored Mesons: New Data Using Old Measurements

Existing data exhibit signatures of small peaks, often not commented by the authors. These peaks are tentatively associated to narrow exotic low mass unflavored mesons. Increasing confidence for the

The experimental status of glueballs


The potential storage of very low energy antiprotons is discussed, and the major features of the radiation fields produced by their annihilations are reviewed both qualitatively and quantitatively and it is concluded that the radiation hazards can be mitigated using conventional means.

Based on η-η′ mixing analysis, we propose a novel method to extract the physical solutions for the hadronic properties of the Y (4230) resonance from the experimental data. Experimentally, multiple

Probing isovector scalar mesons in the charmless three-body B decays

We propose to study the multiparticle configurations of isovector scalar mesons, saying a0(980) and a0(1450), in the charmless three-body B decays by considering the width effects. Two scenarios of

An Helium calorimeter for Anti-Deuteron identification in cosmic rays

The observation of sub-GeV antideuteron in the cosmic ray ux could be a very strong signature of dark matter annihilation in our galaxy. The goal of the Anti Deuteron Helium Detector (ADHD) project

Dark QCD matters

Abstract We investigate the nightmare scenario of dark sectors that are made of non-abelian gauge theories with fermions, gravitationally coupled to the Standard Model (SM). While testing these

It is shown that f0(1500) is compatible with the ground state glueball expected around 1500 MeV mixed with the nearby states of the 0 ++ Q ¯ state.
