Multipole Polarizabilites of Positronium and Its Interaction with Atoms and Molecules — •Jorge Charry, Dmitry Fedorov, and Alexandre Tkatchenko — University of Luxembourg, 1511 Luxembourg, Luxembourg

Positron – the antiparticle of the electron – has many intriguing fundamental properties and it is also useful in many applications for probing matter. Besides electron-positron annihilation, metastable states of atomic and molecular systems involving binding between electrons and positrons are of great interest [1]. In addition, electrons and positrons can form positronium (Ps) atoms and even larger clusters. The polarization of positron by a residual ion is one of possible mechanisms for the formation of bound states for positron-based chemistry [2]. An accurate description of the polarizability of Ps and its bound state with atoms and molecules is essential to understand such interactions. Here, we extend the direct transition-matrix approach, proposed by Kharchenko to determine the multipole polarizabilities of the hydrogen atom [3], to the case of finite nuclear mass. The obtained analytical results, which are in agreement with our numerical calculations performed by means of the molecular orbital based method [4], show that Ps has unique properties in comparison to other normal atoms. Our results shed light into the fundamental interactions between matter and antimatter. [1] Gribakin et al., Rev. Mod. Phys. 82, 2557 (2010); [2] Bromley and Mitroy, J. Phys.: Conf.
