Dorfan, D.E.; Eades, J.; Lederman, L.M.; Lee, W.; Ting, C.C.;
Observation of Antideuterons
Phys. Rev. Lett. 14 (1965) 1003;

Motivation
Using a high-transmission mass analyzer designed to search for unitary-symmetry triplets, we have observed the production of antideuterons in 30 BeV proton-beryllium collisions.
The search was made in a 41 / 2-deg beam described in the preceding Letter. This communication also described the logic designed to suppress =1 particles and their residue while recording beam-defined particles of 0.81 < < 0.96. To bring antideuterons into the sensitive velocity band, the beam was tuned to momenta between 4.5 and 6 BeV/c. We also report on a search for antitritons in the momentum interval near 9.0 BeV/c.
