Abstract

We have been concerned in the previous chapter with the detection of a non-Newtonian interaction via the composition-dependent acceleration differences that such a field would produce for two dissimilar samples of ordinary matter. However, a new intermediate-range force could also give rise to an acceleration difference between matter and antimatter, and hence it is of interest to explore what can be learned from antimatter experiments.
