"Unusual properties of positronium moving in a magnetic field"

A.A. Simovonyan (teamwork with B.O. Kerbikov)


When positronium moves in a magnetic field, a radical restructuring of its structure occurs. In addition to the distortion of the original Coulomb levels, an extra wide “magnetic” well occurs with its own spectrum of long-lived states. The reason for this transformation is that in a magnetic field it is impossible to completely separate the movement of the centre of mass from the internal dynamics. Interest in the issue originates from the well-known paper of A.E. Shabad and V.V. Usov on “light positronism” in the magnetoatmosphere of a pulsar.
