Positrons for Low Energy Antihydrogen Production

  • G. Gabrielse

Abstract

Based upon the capture of low energy antiprotons in an ion trap, we are investigating the possibility of producing antihydrogen by merging extremely cold trapped plasmas of antiprotons and positrons. In principle, the calculated rate for antihydrogen is very high compared to other techniques. Here we survey the possibility of accumulating a high density of trapped positrons.
