Paper Abstract

We propose a new mechanism that can contribute to the spontaneous recombination of antihydrogen atoms in traps containing cold positron-antiproton plasma in the presence of a constant magnetic field. The latter plays a principal role restricting the motion of the positron in the transverse plane and, finally, prolonging the time during which the positron can lose its energy due to spontaneous radiation. Classical and quantum mechanical estimates are presented under the conditions close to those experimentally realized in the existing traps.
