Hydrogen-Antihydrogen Why interesting? n 1. Intriguing physics of atom-antiatom What does CPT violation mean for HH ?
Hydrogen-Antihydrogen Why interesting? n 2. Can we use H for fast deexcitation of H ? n 3. How long survive? n 4. Collisional shift and broadening of H
HH -molecule and fundamental symmetries HH -molecule and fundamental symmetries C-symmetry P-symmetry CP-symmetry
CPT and HH-molecule CPT violation induces C-violation in HH hamiltonian: C forbidden transitions: C in =-1, C fin =+1 C in =1 C fin =-1
Kinematics n Quantum numbers of opened channels
FORMALISM: 2 component Wave-function is the quantum numbers set of opened Protonium channels
Model H r1r1 r2r2 R R r Pr Ps Variational calculation
In the simplest approximation we consider Pr and Ps relative motion as free, using free motion Green functions 32 final states are taken into account. MODEL: SIMPLE APPROXIMATION
Model: Final equation For R>1 a.u. : All information about inelastic transitions is within complex operator W eff, which vanishes for R>1 a.u. U nucl (R)-complex potential, describing nuclear absorption -C 6 /R 6 Quasibound states with inelastic width 1a.u.
Imaginary part of effective interaction

Oscillations with C 6
The effect of nuclear potential
Weakly-bound metastable states.
Scattering length oscillations
Analytical expression for scattering length Short range potential W eff + “long range”C 6 /R 6 r 0 is the range of W eff, about 1 r B, is phase shift produced by short-range complex interaction. W eff -C 6 /R 6 r0r0 Im black sphere Im <<1-oscillations, Re is very important Semitransparent Im a/Im a at =1.5
Excitation transfer reactions
CONCLUSIONS n 1. Nearthreshold weakly bound states is a key to dynamics. n 2. Magnifying glass – enhancemant of short range (nuclear) effects in n 3. Excitation transfer reactions can be a tool for antihydrogen deexcitation. n 4. Fundamental symmetries of molecule- can we check CPT with it? can we check CPT with it?
