Etymologies

Sorry, no etymologies found.

Examples

  • The existence of the mirror world can contribute to invisible decay of orthopositronium via orthopositronium-mirror orthopositronium oscillations, see here, but Randall-Sundrum type extra dimensions can also lead to the same effect.

    Identifying Dark Matter

  • It was realized some time ago by Glashow [5] that the orthopositronium system provides one sensitive way to search for the mirror universe.

  • The idea is that small kinetic mixing of the ordinary and mirror photons may exist which would mix ordinary and mirror ortho positronium, leading to maximal ortho positronium - mirror orthopositronium oscillations.
