  Antineutron - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The antineutron is the antiparticle of the neutron.
In particular, the antineutron consists of two anti-down quarks and one anti-up quark.
The magnetic moment of the antineutron is the opposite of that of the neutron.

 Fenice   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
It appears that the ratio between neutron and proton form factors in the time-like region is equal or larger than 1 in the explored energy range.
Other interesting results from FENICE concern a new measurement of the J/y branching ratio in neutron + antineutron and of the multihadronic electron/positron annihilation cross section close to the neutron/antineutron threshold.
Dotted lines represent the "star" produced by the interaction of the antineutron, while the neutron is detected by the isolated yellow counter in the low right quadrant.

 Evidence of existence of antineutron   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
This picture, taken in the Berkeley 30 inch propane bubble chamber in 1958, demonstrates the existence of the antineutron - the antiparticle of the neutron.
The antineutron formed in the process travels an actual distance of 9.5 cm before annihilating in a characteristic `annihilation star' which is consistent with the process
The visible energy released in the star is > 1500 MeV, which is approaching the amount expected when the rest mass of an antineutron and a proton is `converted' into energy.

The antineutron momentum, ranging from about 50 to 405 MeV/c, allows for this reaction the (1.88 - 1.92) GeV mass window, suitable for the search of the narrow state.
At low energies, the initial antineutron-proton state is a statistical mixing of S and P waves; moreover, the isospin quantum numbers for the antineutron proton 3pi+ 2pi- 1pi0 annihilation are I=1, G=+, I3=+1.
This state could indeed have a chance to be observed in such a reaction, provided the formation mechanism be the same, and that different components of the isospin 1 multiplet show up in a similar way.

 Nucleon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The mean-square charge radius related to the scattering length measured in low energy electron-neutron scattering for the neutron is -0.116 fm
Violation of baryon number conservation may give rise to oscillations between the neutron and antineutron, through processes which change B by two units.
Using free neutrons from nuclear reactors, as well as neutrons bound inside nuclei, the mean time for these transitions is found to be greater than 1.3×10

A hypothetical form of matter that is identical to physical matter except that its atoms are composed of antielectrons, antiprotons, and antineutrons.
The only difference between the antiparticles and their normal counterpart is the net charge, everything else is the same...for example, their mass, the propagation of light and sound and gravity, ect (hence why Simfishy said the universe would be completely the same if all the patricles would be replaced by their antipatricles).
You might think in that case that the neutron and antineutron are the same thing, but in fact they arent.

The detection of the antineutron came 5 years later in 1960.
The next step in testing the symmetry between matter and antimatter was resolved concurrently by CERN and the Brookhaven National Laboratory in 1965 with the creation of the antidueteron.
A deuteron is a nucleus from by a proton and a neutron, the antidueteron was formed by combining an antiproton and an antineutron.

 Re: Is any connection between dark matter and unmatter?
Smarandache describes two types of "unmatter" in his CERN preprint at (http://cdsweb.cern.ch/search.py?recid=798551&ln=en): the first type "is formed by electrons, protons, and antineutrons;" the second type "is formed by antielectrons, antiprotons, and neutrons".
Smarandache seems to think that protons and antineutrons will bind together and last long enough to form "unmatter unatoms" of the first type with electrons.
Antineutrons are made of antiquarks, two antidown antiquarks and one antiup antiquark.

 Antimatter: My Term Paper
An antineutron would then have the opposite magnetic moment (the antineutron's north magnetic pole would be in the location of the neutron's south magnetic pole and vice versa).
The antineutron would have the same mass as the antiproton, so the energy needed was available in 1955.
Nonetheless, as the neutron and antineutron would have opposite magnetic moments, a new team of physicists at Berkeley was able to detect the antineutron only 1 year after the antiproton's discovery.

See FRONTIERS article, and the experiment's web page.
CPT-symmetry puts strong constraints on the relative properties of particles and antiparticles and, therefore, is open to stringent tests.

The pion has baryon number zero (it is a meson) and the proton has baryon number +1, so the baryon number of the antineutron must be —1.
The pion and the proton each have strangeness zero, so the strangeness of the antineutron must also be zero.
In summary, for the antineutron, (a) q = 0, (b) B = —1, (c) and S = 0.

In 1955, the antiproton was discovered, followed just a few years later by the antineutron in 1959.
The first antideuterion, which is composed of a single antiproton and single antineutron, and is the nucleus of antideuterium, was created in 1965.
A team working at CERN in 1995 was able to combine antideuterions with positrons to form the first antideuterium atoms.

As the energy increases, the large angle neutrons (antineutrons) are slower and more spread out in momentum.
I consider a (typical) neutron or antineutron with p of 1.4 GeV/c (beta =0.83) so that a counter at 5m from the interaction point (20 ns flight time) gives a rms lab angular error of 0.6 degrees and a rms error in beta of 0.019.

 Particle Mass Ratios, and Similar Geometric Volume Ratios
The average volumetric ratio (last pair of patterns) is the three "large" spheres plus the three "intermediate" size spheres divided by six small spheres.
This volumetric ratio is compared to a mass ratio consisting of the average mass of a proton, antiproton, neutron and antineutron, to the mass of an electron.
((If the neutron and antineutron were ignored, the ratios comparison would be in better agreement.

The energy scale where (B-L) violation takes place cannot be predicted by theory and therefore has to be explored by experiments.
Different experimental approaches to searching for (B-L)-violating transition of neutron to antineutron are discussed in this paper.
Most powerful search for neutron to antineutron transitions can be performed in a new reactor-based experiment at HFIR reactor (ORNL) where sensitivity can be >1,000 times higher than in the previous experiments.
