  13. Ratios of particles and anti-particles at By looking at ratios of particles and anti-particles in the same spectrometer angular setting, from fields of opposite polarities the geometrical acceptance of the detector and efficiencies will tend to cancel out. We still have to take into account absorption of anti-protons and protons produced in the beampipe. Michael Murray, Texas A&M, CMS Heavy Ion Mtg at MIT
