Positron Annihilation

Positron Group

The Positron Group is part of the Correlated Electron Systems Group at the University of Bristol. Positrons are anti-electrons, and in Bristol we use them to investigate the properties of materials by annihilating their electrons and making measurements of the gamma rays that are produced. We also complement our positron measurements with visits to synchrotron sources and often make our own ab-initio calculations to support our work.

International Conference on Positron Annihilation

The 16th International Conference on Positron Annihilation (ICPA-16) will be held at the H. H. Wills Physics Laboratory, University of Bristol, United Kingdom in the period of 19-24 August 2012.
