A decay of an anti-hyperon,\(\overline {\Lambda ^0 } \), in nuclear emulsion, in nuclear emulsion

  • D. J. Prowse
  • M. Baldo Ceolin


An event which has been found in a stack of nuclear emulsion exposed to 106 4.6 GeVπ-mesons per cm2, has been interpreted as an example of the decay in flight of an anti-hyperon,\(\overline {\Lambda ^0 } \), The event and the interpretation are discussed in detail.


Un evento, trovato in un pacco di emulsioni nucleari esposte a 106 π di 4.6 GeV/cm2 è stato interpretato come un esempio del decadimento in volo di un anti-iperone,\(\overline {\Lambda ^0 } \). L’evento e l’interpretazione sono discussi in dettaglio.
