Cascade time of antiprotons in gaseous hydrogen

Academic Article


  • Antiprotons moderated in H2 are captured in the Coulomb field of protons forming p̄p atoms. The time which elapsed between capture into atomic orbits and annihilation has been measured in H2 at NPT. A cascade time of (5.1±0.7) ns was determined. © 1988.
