Antiprotonic Helium “Atomcule”: Relativistic and QED Effects

  • V.I. Korobov
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 570)


We present theoretical calculations for the (36, 35) → (34, 33) transition between metastable states in the antiprotonic helium \( ^4 {\text{He}}^{\text{ + }} \overline p \) , which is supposed to be measured in the two-photon high-precision spectroscopy experiment at CERN.
