Abstract:

During the course of this research, several trips were made to LEAR the Low Energy Antiproton Ring in Geneva. On one trip, the feasibility of using a thick beryllium degrader to slow antiprotons enough to permit capture was established. On another trip, approximately 1000 antiprotons were captured and held for about ten minutes. Subsequently, a completely new apparatus was designed using a proper superconducting magnet, and a beam line at LEAR was designed for the mass measurement. At the end of the research period, all apparatus and arrangements were complete for making the measurement of the antiproton inertial mass. JHD
