CERN-Ecole Polytechnique-Saclay collaboration;
Example of Anticascade + Particle Production in p Interactions at 3.0 GeV/c.
Phys. Rev. Lett. 8 (1962) 257;

An experiment is in progress at the CERN proton synchrotron to study the interactions of fast antiprotons with protons. A high-energy separated beam has been installed and optimized to provide, in the first instance, a high-purity beam of 3.0 GeV/c antiprotons. The interactions are being produced and observed in the Saclay 81-cm hydrogen bubble chamber.
In the methodical scanning of the first ten thousand photographs (with an average of seven antiprotons per photograph) an event has been found showing the production of an anticascade particle +. The object of this Letter is to present the data and the analysis leading to this conclusion. (Extracted from the introductory part of the paper.).
