Friday, Feb.20, at 4p.m. in Wilson Hall, room 1 West.
Fermilab operates the world's most intense antiproton source.
Newly proposed experiments can use those antiprotons either
parasitically during Tevatron Collider running or after the
Tevatron Collider finishes in about 2010. For example,
the annihilation of 8 GeV antiprotons might make the
world's most intense source of tagged D0 mesons,
and thus the best near-term opportunity to study charm mixing and,
via CP violation, to search for new physics.
An experiment using a Penning trap and an atom interferometer
could make the world's first measurement of the gravitational
force on antimatter. Other potential measurements will also
be discussed, to give a flavor of the veritable "physics cornucopia"
that could be manifest.
