    • Comparison of planar and 3D silicon pixel sensors used for detection of low energy antiprotons 

      Gligorova, Angela; Holmestad, Helga Margrete; Huse, Torkjell; Kaltenbacher, Thomas; Pacifico, Nicola; Røhne, Ole Myren; Sandaker, Heidi; Zmeskal, Johann (IEEE, 2014-12)
      The principle aim of the AEḡIS experiment at CERN is to measure the acceleration of antihydrogen due to Earth’s gravitational field. This would be a test of the Weak Equivalence Principle, which states that all bodies ...

    • Detection of low energy antiproton annihilations in a segmented silicon detector 

      Aghion, Stefano; Gligorova, Angela; Huse, Torkjell; Pacifico, Nicola; Røhne, Ole Myren; Sandaker, Heidi; Zavatarelli, S. (IOP Publishing, 2014-06)
      The goal of the AEḡIS experiment at the Antiproton Decelerator (AD) at CERN, is to measure directly the Earth’s gravitational acceleration on antimatter by measuring the free fall of a pulsed, cold antihydrogen beam. The ...
