Possibility of resonant capture of antiprotons by highly charged hydrogenlike ions

Recently, an experimetal setup was proposed by Lapierre et al (in Physics with ultra slow antiproton beams, AIP Conference Proceedings, edited by Y. Yamazaki and M. Wada (2005), vol. 793, p. 361) which would allow antiprotons and highly charged ions to collide repeatedly in an electron beam ion trap (EBIT) due to a nested trap configuration. As mentioned by the authors, such a setup may open the possibility to study antiproton capture into well-defined states through a resonant process which involves simultaneous electron excitation. In the present work, we give some theoretical estimations of the feasibility of that process.
