X-ray spectroscopy of hadronic exotic atoms and application in foundations of quantum physics


  • Dr. Johann MARTON

Primary authors


In hadron physics arrays of silicon drift detectors (SDDs) were extremely successful used for spectroscopy of kaonic atoms. Presently new experiments on X-ray spectroscopy at DAFNE/LNF-INFN in Italy and J-PARC in Japan for the first strong interaction studies of kaonic deuterium are in preparation. The development of SDD X-ray detectors is also crucial for experiments in foundation of quantum physics. The experiment VIP (1,2) at the underground laboratory Gran Sasso is using these solid-state detectors. The talk will provide an overview of application of SDDs in hadron physics at DAFNE and J-PARC involving kaonic atoms and will discuss the application in the underground experiment VIP.
