Abstract: The ALPHA experiment performs both spectroscopic and gravitational measurements on antihydrogen. Apparatus can trap only about one atom at a time! All proposed measurements are difficult to perform on a single (anti-) atom. Proposal: Increase the number of antihydrogen

Abstract: Generating cold (<50 K) single component electron plasmas is of critical importance to many experiments. Examples include optimizing recombination rates for antihydrogen or Rydberg atom production and producing mono-energetic beams. Replacing a section of a Penning-Malmberg trap
