Fate of positrons in matterPositrons slow down to thermalenergies in 3-10 ps. After diffusing insidethe matter positrons are trapped invacancies or defects.Kinetics results in trapping rates about105 times larger than annihilation rates:defect concentrations down to 10-7 areaccessible.metals(screening)e para-Psinsulatorsvoidsortho-Psfree2g0.2 nstrapped2g0.5 nsself2g0.125 nscapture2g1.0 nsself3g142 nsspin-flip2g1 - 100 nsPage 3Geburtstagskolloquium Reinhard Krause-RehbergMember of the Helmholtz Association Andreas Wagner I Institute of Radiation Physics I www.hzdr.de
