Description Cross section for single, nondissociative ionization of molecular hydrogen for impact of antiprotons have been measured. We have found that the cross section which is proportional to the projectile velocity, which is quite unlike the behavior of corresponding atomic cross sections, and which has never previously been observed experimentally.
Exploitation Route The results obtained during this grant can be used to benchmark theories of antiproton-atomic collisions.

Description Our findings have been used by many scientists to justify theoretical and experimental work in number of areas of basic physics. Organisations such as CERN and our institutions have used our work to promote their respective missions, and in the public understanding of science.
