  Positron - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
When a low-energy positron collides with a low-energy electron, undergoing an annihilation event, their mass is converted into the kinetic energy of two gamma ray photons (see electron-positron annihilation).
The existence of positrons was first postulated in 1928 by Paul Dirac as an inevitable consequence of the Dirac equation.
Anderson also unsuccessfully suggested renaming electrons "negatrons." The positron was the first evidence of antimatter and was discovered by passing cosmic rays through a gas chamber and a lead plate surrounded by a magnet to distinguish the particles by bending differently charged particles in different directions.

The positron is the antiparticle of the electron: it has the same mass as the electron but its charge is positive.
Then the positron is in a quantum-mechanical state in which the strong positron - positive nuclei repulsion is a prominent feature pushing the positron density away from ion core regions.
If the positron is trapped by a vacancy-type defect in a solid its lifetime increases from that of a delocalized positron due to the reduced electron density.

A positron is a particle of matter with the same mass as an electron, but opposite charge.
It is a form of antimatter because, when a positron encounters an electron, the two completely annihilate to yield energy.
The existence of the positron was predicted in 1928 by physicist Paul Dirac, and positrons were discovered experimentally in 1932 by physicist Carl Anderson.
