Some selected topics
Some Selected Topics

  • Antiprotons for Charm Physics

  • Kaonic Nuclear Clusters – Production with Antiproton Annihilation

  • Mesons and Antiprotons in Nuclear Media

  • Anti Deuteron Beams for Charm in Nuclei?

  • Can we breed Anti Helium?

  • Fundamental Symmetries and Antihydrogen

Case Studies: Y(4260)X(3872)Z(3930)X(3940)Y(3940)...

Spectroscopy of charmonium states
Spectroscopy of Charmonium States

  • Measurement of the total width and all branching widths of the charmonium states

  • Determination of the transition probabilities

  • Deduction of the wave functions of the states

  • Access to non-perturbative and thus confinement effects

  • Needs advanced QFT treatment (Weise et al.)

Such a program was proposed by Bertold Stech ~ for the bottomonium system to search for non-perturbative effects. It looks even more promising for charmonium. Who does it ???

Perspectives of antiproton and antikaon physics


  • Minimize circumference

Strangeness and charm in nuclei
Strangeness and Charm in Nuclei

  • Discovery of strange tribaryon: ppnK-, pnnK- with binding energies of about 200 MeV and Γ< 20 MeV

  • Work in progress to search for predicted high density of these kaonic nuclear clusters with <ρ>~ 3ρ(0)

  • Production of kaonic nuclear clusters by antiproton absorption, including transfer of 2 antikaons to produce high density matter  kaon condensation ? New form of fermionic matter ???

  • The creation of charmed bound nuclear matter {D+n} is a real challenge. Anti-deuteron annihilation ??? Subthreshold antiproton annihilation ???

  • The cross section:

  • The kinematics

  • Double kaon production in nuclei:

     With the binding energy exceeding ~ 225 MeV,

    double kaonic nuclei can be produced

    even by stopped antiprotons.

Sextupole Toroidal Racetrack Storage Ring for Hyperfine Structure Studies of Antihydrogen

Equilibrium condition of antihydrogen with magnetic moment μ on a circular orbit with radius ρs in a toroidal sextupole field with magnetic field gradient ∂B/∂rlρs:

With the parameters of the NESTOR storage ring, ρ= 0.5 m, B=3.2 T and

∂B/∂r = 1.2 T/cm one can store antihydrogen with v= 600 m/s or equivalent

to a temperature of 21 K (!!!) which is easier to produce than required for standard traps.
