On stability of nanoscale electron-positron droplets

Theoretical physics

This paper presents the results of the total energy calculation for electroneutral electron-positron clusters with closed shells. The calculations were performed within the random Phase approximation with exchange to take into account many-particle correlations that allowed us to reduce the energy per one electron-positron pair below the energy per one pair of dipositronium molecule. The most stable electron-positron clusters are found for the cluster sizes in the interval from 20 to 40 pairs.
